During this time of shortage and demand for blood, Cambridge Village held an internal blood drive in partnership with the American Red Cross on Friday, February 5th. They filled 23 of 24 available spots. The 23 included 13 staff, 5 residents, 1 fitness member and 4 family members. 18 units of blood were collected which can impact up to 54 recipients in our community. Times were spread out to adhere to social distancing and all participants went through an extensive health questionnaire. The next blood drive is tentatively set for June with plans of hosting twice a year.
