CITY OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO AND RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood and since blood cannot be manufactured, it must be given by volunteer donors. Since blood has a limited shelf life, the community blood supply must constantly be replenished, to meet patients’ needs. Blood donors can make a life-waving contribution by giving blood.
The City of South San Francisco is working in cooperation with the Red Cross to host a Blood Drive on Monday, August 26th, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Municipal Services Building, 33 Arroyo Drive. The donation process takes about an hour from start to finish; this includes checking in, screening, donation and time in the canteen. Learning more about the process is easy. Just visit www.redcrossblood.org where you can schedule your appointment online and obtain answers to any questions you might have about donating if this is your first time. You can also feel free to contact Greg Mediati at 829-3800 or Greg.Mediati@ssf.net or Susan Kennedy at 650-829-6603 or email@example.com if you have questions or need assistance. Also, feel free to share this information with friends and family members as well.
The Red Cross is offering a special promotion for the Labor Day Holiday. Donors who donate between August 26 and September 9 will be entered to win one of five $1,000 American Express Gift cards. (Promotional rules apply and can be accessed here: visit redcrossblood.org for details. Please note that no portion of this gift card incentive comes from financial contributions to disaster relief. People who make a financial donation to the Red Cross can rest assured knowing an average of 91 percent of every dollar raised goes to support humanitarian services, which surpasses the standards of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.)
