District 10 Como Community Council

Five blood drives planned

Como Community Blood Drives
D10 Como Park partners with the American Red Cross and the Como Zoo & Conservatory to host community blood drives at the zoo. Drives are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is limited, reservations required.
2024 Drive Dates:
• Wednesday, March 6
• Thursday, May 23 
• Tuesday, Aug. 6
• Tuesday, Oct. 15
• Wednesday, Dec. 18
With so many still working from home, workplace blood drives have all but vanished, affecting the Red Cross’ reserve levels. Community blood drives are the perfect opportunity to take a break from the home office or start a trip to the zoo! 
There are also opportunities to volunteer at the check-in table. The drives are split into two shifts of two volunteers each, 9 a.m. to noon and noon to 3 p.m. It’s light work and a great way to connect with another neighbor. Find registration and more details at

Want to be in the neighborhood loop but aren’t able to attend our monthly meetings? Through the miracle of modern technology, most of our Como community meeting presentation recordings are available to view on our website. We have 19 recordings from 2023 alone, and many have links to the presentation slides and other resources.
JOIN THE Board in 2024
Here’s your chance to tackle that new year’s resolution to get more involved: Several seats are up for election in April to the District 10 Como Community Council board. 
It is highly recommended that you join us at some monthly meetings (schedule below), which are always open to all community members, before making the decision to commit to a board position.
These positions serve two-year terms, through April 2025. To get on the ballot, fill out an application at District10ComoPark.org/Elections. That’s where you can also learn more about the roles and opportunities of board members. The filing deadline is Sunday, April 1. The election ends April 15. If you have any questions or would like to know more about being a board member you can reach out to district10@district10comopark.org
