Join AAA March Blood Drive Week  

Hosted by the AAA Community Outreach Committee
Week of March 22-26 – GIVE or GET Mobile Blood Drive at Properties benefitting We Are Blood

Wednesday, March 24 – GIVE or GET AAA Blood Drive benefitting American Red Cross

CRITICAL NEED: Your blood donation is essential to maintaining our community’s health. 

Our upcoming blood drive collection goal on March 24, 2021 is 40 units. Every unit we donate at our blood drive can help save up to three lives. Think about ALL 120 of those lives we can touch by signing up to donate.

A typical donation takes less than one hour, and we are proud to make that available to you. If you can’t give, you can still make an impact by volunteering to support the drive and encouraging others to give using your network, social channels and word of mouth.

Each recipient of blood donations has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. Our impact goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit we donated.

The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for organizations like ours. We are proud to support our community, our country and be a part of the impact that the Red Cross makes every day.
