Yavneh Academy will host Zach & Maddie’s Mitzvah Blood Drive & Bone Marrow Registration from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday in Pollman Hall.
Maddie White, for whom Yavneh first dedicated its annual drive, has required a number of surgeries and the transfusion of hundreds of pints of plasma, whole blood, and platelets. Despite a hospitalization last fall, Maddie is a thriving eighth-grader at Parish Episcopal School.
The event’s other namesake, Zach Guillot, is also a Parish Episcopal student. Zach has spent much of the last year in Seattle, battling leukemia and fielding phone calls from superheroes.
Walk-ins are welcome, but you can make an appointment by emailing Deb Silverthorn at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 972-839-6916.
