MarineMax Charleston hosts blood drive for the American Red Cross

MarineMax Charleston plans to host a blood drive to support the American Red Cross.

Diana De Carvalho, MarineMax Regional Marketing Manager, states, “we want to do our part in giving back to the community, so we are partnering with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive at MarineMax Charleston.”

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 is honored to partner with the Red Cross to make this event happen.”

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 in June will receive a $5.00 Amazon gift card, a complimentary health screening, and snacks and drinks after the donation is complete. Visit www.redcrossblood.org and click on the DONATE BLOOD tab at the top of the website. Read more about the process and be sure to type in the sponsor code” MarineMax” to book your appointment.
