Blood Drive, 3 - 7 PM, Chevy Chase United Methodist Church, 7001 Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase
- Date: 09/12/2019 3:00 PM - 6:59 PM
The Section 3 Council has arranged for the Red Cross to come to Chevy Chase United Methodist Church (located at 7001 Connecticut Avenue in Chevy Chase) on September 12 from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. for a blood drive.
The blood drive is in memory of the late Ken Harney, husband of Section 3 Town Manager Andy Leon Harney. Ken died on May 23 of Acute Myeloid Leukemia. On his death, Ken’s family received many condolence notes asking if there was anything they could do for the family. Throughout Ken’s illness he received countless blood transfusions from total strangers who donated their blood to help sustain him. Though his form of leukemia is rare, there are so many people with blood diseases requiring transfusions that the family felt there was no better way to “pay it forward” than to help return the kindness by donating blood in his memory. Interested donors can sign up for a time slot by registering in advance online at :
