Local Scout Is Out For Blood- Donations

Blood drive to help shore up life-saving reserves.bloodmobile

Completing an Eagle Scout project can be draining for any young man, but for Acton Boy Scout Micah Lively, that’s kind of the point. Lively is organizing a two-day blood drive to help fill the growing need for the vital fluid in modern medical procedures.

 

From 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. this Sunday, donors will visit the Acton Community Club to get pricked for patients at area hospitals. The project will continue January 3, when more volunteers will open their arms for a similar event at Santa Clarita United Methodist Church from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walk-in donors will be accepted, and appointments can also be reserved at www.micah.givesblood.org. More than 48 people are already scheduled to participate.

 

Lively says he was eager to be a donor himself as soon as he was old enough.

 

“I’ve always wanted to give blood because my mom always gave blood,” said Lively. “Since only one out of 10 Californians give blood I thought I would encourage more people to give blood on a regular basis.”

 

Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, which is sponsoring the event, has ensured that the each pint collected will be deposited in local blood banks to be used in regional hospitals. According to Providence, blood bank reserves are chronically low during the winter holidays.

 

To earn his Eagle badge, the highest rank in Boy Scouting, a scout must plan, develop, and give leadership to others in a service project helpful to a non-scouting organization or community.

 

“It’s a lot of work, but I know it’s for a good cause,” said Lively. “Hopefully, I’ll make return donors out of first-time donors.”

 

One out of every 10 hospital patients needs some blood, and even one pint can help save the lives of several patients. Donors must be 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more, and can give every eight weeks. The Acton Community Club is located at 3748 West Nickels Ave. in Acton. Santa Clarita United Methodist Church is located at 26640 Bouquet Canyon Rd.
