On Monday, October 31st, brave trick-or-treaters can forgo the fake blood of Halloween and donate the real thing. Montavilla United Methodist Church and the Montavilla/East Tabor Business Association (METBA) are co-sponsoring an American Red Cross blood drive from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Timeslot registration is available online at the Red Cross website.
Donors and family should go to the Montavilla United Methodist Church at 232 SE 80th Avenue during their assigned time. There will be pumpkin painting for young family members while parents donate, and the church’s sanctuary will remain open for anyone wishing to light a candle in honor of lost loved ones. Blood Drive participants will receive a punch card featuring special rewards redeemable at participating local businesses. Costumes are welcomed and encouraged.
