MarineMax Charleston Helps Community One Pint of Blood at a Time
~ Free COVID Antibody Testing For a Good Cause ~
CHARLESTON, SC (August 13, 2020) – MarineMax Charleston plans to host a second blood drive to support the American Red Cross.
Diana De Carvalho, MarineMax Regional Marketing Manager, states, "We hosted our first event in June and the turnout was so tremendous we decided to do it again. Our partnership with the American Red Cross has helped us as we continue to do our part in giving back to the community."
The need for blood is constant, and patients continue to need lifesaving blood products. The American Red Cross needs your help by donating blood. They will be taking extra precautions based on new CDC recommendations, including social distancing, disinfecting surfaces between patients, temperature checking staff and donors, and encouraging donors to make appointments ahead of time to space out visits. For more information, visit https://rcblood.org/2M817fA.
De Carvalho continues, "all staff, volunteers, and donors will be required to wear masks so the process will be very safe. Our team at MarineMax Charleston really enjoyed and appreciated working with the American Red Cross team and look forward to hosting a second event.”
ALL participants will receive FREE COVID Antibody Testing and a $5 Amazon Card (via email)!
Blood donations can help save people of all ages. There is an urgent need to replenish supplies in hospitals nationwide from an accident or burn victim to surgeries recipients and those battling cancer. Donors that give blood will receive FREE COVID Antibody Testing, a $5.00 Amazon gift card, a complimentary health screening, and snacks and drinks after the donation is complete.
