20TH Annual Nick Ressler Blood Drive

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Once again, we are honored to host this life-saving event, sponsored by Nick’s parents and Beede members Pam and Paul Ressler. It will be held on Saturday, September 25th, from 8:00am - 1:00pm.

It began with community — and 20 years later community is what sustains the annual Nick Ressler Blood Drive. When 14-year-old Nick Ressler became critically ill in 2001, blood transfusions became essential in affording Nick the opportunity to continue to be a kid in our community — attending Concord Middle School, hanging out with friends and family, and extending his life for several months. In 2001, 300 donors rolled up their sleeves for Nick and the community has continued to roll up their sleeves each year for all the other Nicks who now need the precious gift of blood.
In the two decades since the first Nick Ressler Blood Drive, more than 3,000 individuals have been helped by the blood donated at the Nick Ressler Blood Drives. Please become part of this ongoing Concord community tradition. For more information, or an appointment time to donate, please email
