13abc All-American Blood Drive

Posted: Updated:
The annual 13abc All-American Blood Drive, co-sponsored by K-100 and Root’s Poultry,  kicks off the Fourth of July Holiday at The University of Toledo (UT) in Rocket Hall on June 27 from 7 am – 6 pm.

Everyone who comes to give blood at UT will get a Red Cross reusable tote, and can enjoy a hot shredded chicken sandwich from Root’s Poultry!

Summer is 100 days of high dives, ball games, and barbecues. It’s 100 ways to dress a burger, catch some shade, or get out of town. It’s 100 chances to clear the calendar for what’s most important.

Over the course of the summer, there are 100 chances to give hope to patients in need by donating blood or platelets through the American Red Cross. Choose your day to help save up to three lives.

During the summer months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at every American Red Cross blood drive than hospital patients need. If at least two more donors gave blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer – above what’s expected – patients would be better assured of having lifesaving blood products readily available to them.

Be sure a blood donation with the Red Cross is on your summer to do list. Donating is quick and easy, and like all good things this time of year, it’s worth celebrating! Make your donation appointment today at www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

“We truly appreciate the willingness of 13abc, K100, and Root’s Poultry to help out in this time of need,” said Tiffany Gradel, Marketing and Communication Manager for the Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region. “Come celebrate the Fourth of July holiday by helping to save up to three lives with your one blood donation. Make June 27th your day to give this summer!”
