Blood Donation – Give blood in the AAMC BloodMobile! Give where you live!  
Anne Arundel Medical Center needs 7300 units of blood a year for accident victims, cancer patients and premature babies right here in our local community. Just 30 minutes of your time can mean a lifetime for someone else!  Please register and donate.  Your donation can save the lives of three people.  Last time we collected 25 Units – helped 75 neighbors. This year’s goal 35 Units – to help 105 neighbors!
You will receive a free mini physical and a cholesterol screening with your donation.
The basic requirements for donating blood are that you be in generally good health and feel well,
be 17 to 75 years of age, and weigh at least 110 pounds.
Clothing Swap  GIVE your gently used clothing to share with your neighbors and then RECEIVE gently used clothing that you can use.  
We are also accepting: shoes, handbags, jewelry, bedding and towels.  
All items remaining at the end of Kaleidoscope will be donated and proceeds will benefit Cresthill Church’s missions efforts in Nicaragua.  
(A clothing donation is not required to receive clothes.)  
Donations accepted Sep 17 thru the day of the event.
Document Shredding!  – bring your documents that need to be securely discarded and have them shredded for free.  Space is limited and documents will be accepted for shredding on a first come, first served basis into secure, locked bins.  Shredding services provided offsite by KANE Office Shredding.
