Chappaqua Rotary is sponsoring a much needed Blood Drive from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Annual Pancake Breakfast.
Please stop by with your family and have pancakes, Matzah Brei, or eggs on us. Those who choose to donate blood will also be treated to an ‘all you can eat’ breakfast.
The American Red Cross will be ready and waiting at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin next to Bell School on South Greeley Avenue in Chappaqua to welcome and care for the blood donors.
The Blood Drive goes from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate donors with busy schedules.
Over 900 Pints collected at Chappaqua Rotary Blood Drives
“So far we’ve collected 925 pints in total at our Chappaqua Rotary Blood Drives since we began them eleven years ago, close to 85 pints per year. This community has a heart” said John Ehrlich, a Rotary Club of Chappaqua Past President who coordinates the Rotary blood drives.
Donors include New Castle town, NY State officials and our County Executive
It’s really amazing how town and area officials step up and join with New Castle residents to donate blood at this event. Town Board Members have already signed-up to donate, regulars also include a County and Town Judge, multiple department heads and many other town employees, a State Senator and even Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino have donated.

Proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast fund local community organizations.
