Blood Drive to Build Local Supply Heading into 4th of July
…because United, We Care!
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 18, 2013 – The Blood Alliance (TBA), Northeast Florida’s sole provider of blood to area hospitals, will host United We Care blood drives in Orange Park and St. Augustine on Saturday, June 22, to help build our community’s blood supply prior to the Fourth of July holiday. It is vitally important for TBA to head into the holiday weekend with a robust supply, to ensure our local hospitals have blood available to treat patients in need, at a time when most people are busy with holiday activities and not thinking about donating blood. All registered donors will be entered into a random drawing to WIN two (2) Daytona Coke 400 race tickets scheduled for July 6, 2013, and other giveaways while supplies last.
