I’m excited to announce the first of what I hope to be many blood drives in 2021 to help F3 Nation reach its anniversary goal of 10,000 pints donated.
- Who: Kermit and YOU
- What: Red Cross Blood Drive, promoted by F3 Raleigh
- When: Saturday, 10/23/2020, 0900 – 1400
- Where: Alexander Family YMCA Gym, 1603 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh NC 27605
- Why: Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several!
Visit redcrossblood.org, and on the top right of the page is a red box Find a Blood Drive. Simply enter F3 — the F3 Raleigh drive is the third on the list of drives. Click “See Times”, then click the time and type of donation you want to give. Also, if you have given recently or will give in the future, but not at this drive, you may enter a pledge by going to the F3 Nation SleevesUp campaign page: https://sleevesup.redcrossblood.org/campain/f3-nation.
Because F3 Nation has such a massive goal, I plan to do several of these next year. My goal is to sit down with our Red Cross contacts after this current blood drive is over and devise a strategy for how to schedule several of these next year. The idea is to have plenty of time to market these drives, and fill them up with our F3 brothers!
My Precious and I will be there to help with setup, registration and the canteen, and if you also wish to help, let me know!
