American Red Cross Blood Drive

Posted on Posted in Miller Center

Give blood and help save lives at The Miller Center!

WHEN: Thursday, May 17th from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

WHERE: The Miller Center on Court 1


Who can donate?

Individuals who are 17 years of age or older, meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.

How long does it take?

When appointments are made in advance, the process takes about an hour. The actual donation takes about eight to 10 minutes. The actual donation time for a double red cell donation is slightly longer and takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. Time is needed for registration, a mini-physical and health history interview, and refreshments following your donation.

How much blood is taken?

For blood donations, a little less than a pint of blood is drawn. Your body will replace the fluid loss in about 24 hours. Red blood cell replacement will begin immediately but will take place four to six weeks for completion.

How will I feel after donating?

Most people feel just fine. Eating a balanced meal and drinking plenty of fluids before your donation, thinking positively about your donation and knowing what to expect will all help. Regular activity can be resumed following the donation, although you should avoid heavy lifting for the remainder of the day.

Raise the Region to fund our scholarship program

Posted on Posted in Miller Center

Today and tomorrow, The Miller Center is participating in a 30-hour online fundraiser known as Raise the Region. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we’re eligible to take part in this unique event to raise money through online giving as well as additional “prize” money provided by local businesses. The event begins today at 6 PM and runs through Thursday, March 15th, at midnight.


We’re using this event to kickstart our scholarship program which will allow us to support kids and families who wish to take part in what we have to offer but might be challenged by their ability to pay. We hope to raise enough funds to be able to support anyone who satisfies eligibility requirements and completes our application. We’ll be reminding you over the next two days to consider a gift and we do hope you’ll chose to get involved. Your gift could:

  • Put a kid into the Next Level Strong Basketball program
  • Help fund after school care for a kid who has no place to go when school’s out
  • Provide nutritional and dietary support for a family that needs it
  • Help pay for Summer Camp for a kid
    …and so much more!

To see our Raise the Region page, click here.

Remember, the fundraising begins TONIGHT at 6 PM so set a reminder on your phone! Your help could make the difference in the life of a child.

Thank you for your consideration,

The Miller Center
