The 9th Annual Carol H. Axelrod Memorial Blood Drive at Lankenau Medical Center will take place on Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days, at Lankenau’s Annenberg Conference Center, Rooms 101A-C. Held in memory of longtime Lower Merion Township resident Carol Axelrod, this American Red Cross blood drive will give donors the opportunity to save lives while also supporting two local organizations. For every unit of blood collected at the drive, Carol’s family will make donations to Main Line Meals on Wheels and the Ardmore Avenue Community Center. If the blood drive collection surpasses last year’s total of 257 units, these donations will be doubled.
All presenting blood donors will receive a gift bag, free parking, and free entry into prize drawings. To schedule a donation appointment, visit or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (mention sponsor code “CHAMemorial”). One blood donation can help save three lives!
