We are interested in sponsoring a blood drive with the American Red Cross. By hosting blood drives, we hope to give back and ensure adequate blood supply is available at all times for anyone who needs it.
Giving blood is safe, simple and helps save lives. Each pint of blood that is donated may be helping as many as three people. The American Red Cross is the largest single provider of blood in the country. They provide blood to 3,000 hospitals across the country. About 38,000 people need blood each day in the United States. Those people count on volunteer donors to give them a chance at life.
As you know, thru my Tx journey, I have received TONS of donated blood; that I otherwise would have literally died without receiving. So, not only did my heart donor save my life, but each and every blood donor’s blood that I received also contributed to my life. Thank you for considering donating and helping someone like me to thrive!
We would like to determine the level of interest in inviting the American Red Cross in to help us with our blood drive and need at least thirty signatures to even begin the planning process. If you would be interested in donating blood, please add your name below with your phone number (your information is safe and not public). We will let you know if a blood drive will be scheduled. Thank you in advance for helping to save lives!
