Sponsored by Always Best Care and the Blood Connection

On Tuesday, June 16th, Always Best Care will partner with The Blood Connection to hold a BLOOD DRIVE.

The need for blood is very serious right now as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and civil unrest. Each pint of blood can help save up to three lives and touch the lives of so many more. Additionally, as Toni Dove--of Always Best Care, who is spearheading this effort-- has pointed out, certain African American patients with rare blood types or medical conditions require very closely matched blood products which may only be found in donors with the same racial or ethnic heritage.

Let’s show our community and the patients in need of blood just how much we can do. Each person who donates will receive a $10 Visa gift card and free COVID-19 antibody testing. Additionally, your name will be placed into a drawing for a larger gift.

We ask that you participate if you are able, and to ask family members, friends, neighbors and church members to consider helping as well. Please pass the word and let's make this a great contribution to the community. Here is the link that you can copy and paste into your browser to sign up for a time slot. If you have trouble signing up, please call Toni at 919-554-2223 and she will help.

It’s not every day that we can do something that has such a lifesaving impact. Let’s blow this out of the water! Thank you for making Always Best Care what it is! We will be looking forward to seeing you at the blood drive.
