The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) will host its third annual Red Cross blood drive in partnership with the Hamilton College chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, on Saturday, October 11 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 21 West Park Row, Clinton, NY.  Drop-ins are welcome, but if you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 315-292-2267. Refreshments will be provided.

International crises have increased the demand for blood.  The AHI encourages citizens in Clinton and the surrounding area to help in a most worthy cause. For this year’s effort, AHI and ADP will be joined by the brothers of the Hamilton chapter of Psi Upsilon Fraternity in order to extend our outreach in the community.

The annual event also recognizes Clara Barton’s historic ties to Clinton. Each donor will receive a priceless gift: an AHI pocket Constitution and Declaration of Independence.  In 1881, Clara Barton founded the American Association of the Red Cross. As a young woman in 1851, she attended a pioneering coeducational academy, the Liberal Institute, run by the Universalist Church in Clinton, NY. Please join us in support of this worthy cause.
