Whether it’s your first time or you’re a familiar face, we invite you to register to be a donor for the fourteenth annual MLK Blood Drive brought to you by Hoxworth Blood Center and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
This event will take place on Monday, January 18, 2021, beginning at 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. outside of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, located at 50 E Freedom Way, Cincinnati, OH. 45202.
In commemorating our Brother, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on this national day of service, we are encouraging you to be a donor as blood is a needed resource in our community. Hoxworth will be working from two mobile units that will be parked directly outside of the Freedom Center for those who register. You must register in advance as walk-ups can not be accommodated. All Hoxworth staff will be following COVID-19 protection mandates by wearing face masks, practicing social distancing, and limiting individuals onsite to avoid crowding. Participants will get a free MLK T-shirt while supplies last. You can also register and donate over the week at one of the neighborhood Hoxworth Blood Centers and mention ‘MLK’ to receive your free T-shirt if you are unable to attend on the day of.
We continue raising awareness of the need for blood throughout the year to our community, as well as stressing the importance of it. Help save a life and be a donor.
