Blood Drive for Ruthie Thomas
Announcement Photo STRENGTH. HOPE. COURAGE.

Go to, click on Make An Appointment, then New Donor, then scroll down to the "Roll Up Your Sleeve For Ruthie" event on October 3rd.

Ruthie Thomas is a 19 month old daughter Rockland family daughter who has been diagnosed with HUS (Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome). Part of her treatment is to receive blood transfusions, which have already helped keep little Ruthie fighting.

Ruthie’s father, Christopher Thomas, teaches at Libertyville High School. Ruthie’s sisters, Eva and Ana Lucia, attend Rockland School.

In the positive spirit of “The Rockland Way”, the Character Counts committee invites the Rockland, LHS and Libertyville community to give Ruthie and other loving children like her strength, hope and courage by donating blood in Ruthie’s honor.

Looking for more ways to support? The 4th grade Girl Scouts will host a bake sale fundraiser at this event!
