Keller Williams Advantage Realty will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM, at the Super 8 Hotel in State College, PA.
For more information or to make an appointment to donate, please sign up online at https://www.redcross.org/ with sponsor code KellerWilliams.
Hosting a blood drive coincides with Keller Williams Advantage Realty's core values of giving back to the community. With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.
The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition, and also have a tremendous impact on their families and loved ones.
Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
Please consider donating blood on Wednesday, June 3, 2020. Your donation can save up to 3 lives!
