Red Cross Blood Drive

The Kensington Hotel will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Sunday, February 28 from 8 am to 2 pm at the hotel.

Hosting a blood drive coincides with The Kensington’s core value of giving back to the community. With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor. Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.

The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.

According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
