Blood Drive at The Newberry Museum

Join us at The Newberry Museum with the American Red Cross!


On Friday, May 3 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, the American Red Cross will have its Bloodmobile onsite to accept blood donations.


Please visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter: NCM to schedule an appointment.

Streamline your donation experience and save up to 15 minutes by visiting RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass to complete your pre-donation reading and health history questions on the day of your appointment.


This event is in correlation with our newest exhibit “The Toll of War.”


“The Toll of War” is a traveling exhibit by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Maryland. The exhibit features both the physical and emotional effects of the war on those who lived through it. The motto of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine is “divided by conflict, united by compassion,” in reference to how doctors, both Northern and Southern, struggled to aid the wounded, and often shared information across the battle lines to help aid the injured.


The Newberry Museum has supplemented the traveling exhibit with our local story entitled “Newberry Veterans: Medical Care, Trauma, and Recovery.” This exhibit delves into many aspects of the experiences of Civil War veterans, those wounded, their families, and those who cared for them during and after the war.
