Darlington School will host a Blood Assurance blood drive on Thursday, Nov. 10, in honor of faculty member Madge Crawford ('84), who was diagnosed with breast cancer in September.
“It is always so meaningful when an event such as this one is held in honor of one of our own,” said Reba Barnes, director of servant leadership. “Madge recently underwent surgery and is doing well. As a school community, we want to support her not only with kind words and gestures, but also through events such as this one that raise awareness.”
The Blood Assurance Blood Vessel will be at the McCallie-Kennedy Library steps that day from 2 to 7 p.m. for anyone who would like to participate.
Crawford has worked at Darlington since 2003 and currently serves as executive assistant to the dean of college guidance. She and her husband, Cooper, are the parents of current students Asa ('13), Will ('16) and Hank ('20).
Those wishing to give blood must be 16 years or older; 16-year-olds must have written consent from a parent or guardian.
