Loveland ELK’s Lodge BPOE 1051 9/11 Community Blood Drive This Weekend

Bonfils Blood Center/Facebook

Are you looking for something meaningful to do in remembrance of September 11th? Join the Loveland ELK’s Lodge BPOE 1051 for their second annual 911 Community Blood Drive. The event runs from today (September 7th) through Monday (September 10th).

The goal of the event is to collect 911 pints of blood during the blood drive to donate to Bonfils Blood Center, Banner Health and Poudre Valley Health System. That amount will meet each agency’s cap in processing 100 pints of blood a day. The blood collected is used for people who need blood to survive cancer therapies, major open heart surgeries, critical accidents and military accident needs.

When you give you will receive two FREE Grimm and Loveland Alehouse BEER coupons, a T-shirt, and be entered to win season tickets for the Colorado Ice, plus all kinds of goodies.

Elks Lodge 1051, where the blood drive will be held, has been serving Loveland since 1906 in the same building at 103 E. Fourth St., known as the Sweetheart Lodge. The lodge, which has 700 members, provides community services through youth programs and scholarships, helps out at patriotic events, hosts social activities and gives to local charities.

For appointments call Mary Thomason at 663-9393 or the Loveland Elks Lodge at 669-6330.

On Sept. 11, the order will announce the total amount of blood donated by hosting a community-wide open house with sponsors, members and guests. Retired Army Maj. Diggs Brown, an author and chief deputy clerk and recorder for Larimer County, will kick off the ceremony with an inspirational speech from 9/11 to Afghanistan.
