Be a Downtown Hero and Give Blood

  • Franklin Hotel 311 West Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27516 (map)

Local high school teens in Venture Crew 9 of Chapel Hill  continue to work towards their service goals for the National Congressional Award as they plan their fifth blood drive this year to help save lives in the community.  Venture Crew 9 has collected 142 pints of blood since the beginning of 2013.  But the need for donations is ongoing, and the crew of boys and girls hope to make their fifth blood drive even bigger. 

Every two seconds someone needs blood.  Unfortunately, only 3% of the population donates blood.  That’s why the need is continuous, and the appeals are ongoing.  Please sign up to give!

Go to using sponsor code “chapelhill” to schedule your life-saving appointment.  Or, contact a crew member at

Please note donors will be treated to a lunch buffet provided by Tyler’s and Med Deli.
