Our 3rd annual Grand Island “Communities That Care” blood drive is just around the corner!  In conjunction with the Grand Island Fire Department, the American Red Cross Blood Services is asking for your help to make this blood drive a success.  The #1 reason that more people do not donate blood is that they have never been asked.  The blood supply in our region is at a dangerously low level and we are looking for your leadership to help alleviate this critical situation.


We are asking you to spread the word at your company or throughout your organization. 


Tuesday, December 9th at the Grand Island Fire Hall

2275 Baseline Rd 1pm-7pm


Your organization’s participation would make a world of difference to hospital patients in our area.

Plus, all presenting donors will be put in drawings to be held throughout the day,

And receive a free Red Cross holiday t-shirt!


Please write the names of the people that agree to participate in this blood drive opportunity and fax the list to the Buffalo Red Cross at (716) 878-2022, or e-mail wengewicze@usa.redcross.org your list of names by Monday, December 8th. Businesses sending in appointments by December 8th will be recognized at the event.


Thank you in advance for rising to the occasion and meeting this challenge. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Account Manager
