Bodwell Center Holding GobbleFest, Blood Drive Events

The University of Maine Bodwell Center for Service and Volunteerism has two community events coming up.

The Bodwell Center and the Old Town-Orono YMCA are holding the 3rd Annual GobbleFest on Sunday, Nov. 11. UMaine students will be at the YMCA from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. collecting turkeys and cash donations, which will be used by Crossroads Ministries to provide families in need with a Thanksgiving dinner.

The American Red Cross, in partnership with the Bodwell Center, is holding a blood drive from 11 a.m to 5 p.m Nov. 14–15 at UMaine’s New Balance Student Recreation Center. Students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to attend. Walk-in donations are welcome, however wait times may be long so appointments are recommended and can be made by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or signing up at

Permit-free parking will be reserved both days for community members in the parking lot at the top of Hilltop Road next to the recreation center. Food will be available for donors, and each donor will be entered into a drawing for prizes such as gift certificates to local businesses. To volunteer, or for more information regarding the blood drive, please contact the Bodwell Center at (207) 581-3091.
