Blood Drive at Port 5 August, 2014

I would like to express my thanks to you and the Yacht Clubs for its commitment to American Red Cross Blood Services. On behalf of the patients we serve, we thank you for hosting your blood drive.

Your drive resulted in 44 presenting blood donors, and we were able to collect 32 pints (76% of 42 pint Goal) of lifesaving blood. Each of those donations could help save up to 3 lives! I know you wish we could have collected more, however, this was our first drive. We had a large number of deferrals. I will ask for a “presenting list” of registered donor names. I am sure we will have a number of new and first time donors, which is awesome!

Every day someone somewhere needs blood. Without dedicated coordinators and sponsors like you serving as a vital link between the blood supply and those who need blood, the Red Cross could not carry out its lifesaving mission.

Again, thank you for your efforts in coordinating a successful blood drive! Giselle/Kim, please pass along my thanks to Rich I for all the food, set up and help you provided!

We look forward to working with you on the next drive. I will be in touch to see if we can schedule a second drive.
