Chapel Hill Venture Crew 9 Members Host 3rd Blood Drive This Year

Community Venturecrew9

Venture Crew 9 in Chapel Hill is sponsoring its third blood drive since January on May 10, 3:30-8 p.m., at Orange United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill. The blood drives help the Central Carolina American Red Cross Donation Center in Durham.

“One of the most important things I’ve learned is that every donation can save up to three lives,” says Crew 9 member Geoffrey Gerdau, a freshman at East Chapel Hill High School who received his Boy Scout Eagle Award along with his twin brother, Garrett Gerdau, during middle school.

“Venturing” is one of the fastest growing programs created by Boy Scouts of America. Designed for boys and girls, it focuses on community service, personal development, physical fitness and outdoor exploration.
