Fontenelle Forest is proud to partner with the American Red Cross and be a part of all they do for our community, our country and around the world.

Our blood drive is important to patients in need, but the collection and distribution of blood is just a small part of all the Red Cross does. The enormity of what the Red Cross accomplishes every day is astounding and this is one of the reasons we chose them as one of our core community outreach partners.

Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood and/or platelets. Every donation made through the Red Cross can help save more than one life.

The Red Cross serves thousands of people every day including military members, victims of accidents and disasters, people experiencing sickness or illness and people in need around the world.

Fontenelle Forest is proud to host multiple blood drives in partnership with the Red Cross each year, helping to make a difference in our community.
