Corwin Beverages Blood Drive on Feb. 5

Once again Corwin Beverages is partnering with the American Red Cross to host an onsite Blood Drive Wednesday, February 5th, at Corwin Beverage Co. (219 South Timm Road in Ridgefield)

Why February?

The need for blood is critical at this time of year. All eligible donors are urged to give.

In February, severe winter weather and seasonal illnesses can make it difficult for the American Red Cross to maintain a sufficient blood supply. Your donation can give hope and strength to patients in need. Your donation may give more life to kids fighting cancer, older adults battling chronic illnesses or accident victims with traumatic injuries

Every unit that is donated at the blood drive can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. Our impact goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit we donated.

The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for organizations like Corwin. They are proud to support our community and be a part of the impact that the Red Cross makes every day.

Think about all of the lives we can touch by signing up to donate. A typical donation takes less than one hour. If you can’t give, you can still make an impact by encouraging others to give, this event is open to friends and family, and by advertising our event on your social media channels and network.

Remember that every blood donation has a story attached to it. The story of why we donated; each volunteer’s story of why they helped; the story of why we hosted the blood drives and the recipient’s story when they receive a generous donation. Consider making your personal story part of the collective stories.

We look forward to your participation and seeing you there.

Let’s make an impact in our community on February 5th
