On Saturday, September 16 we at Burke Mountain will roll up our sleeves and help save lives, proudly partnering with the American Red Cross for our annual Blood Drive. Each pint of blood we collect can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more.What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country.
We are planning some great activities and raffle giveaways for everyone who donates blood that day, including a grand prize overnight stay at the new Burke Mountain Hotel and Conference Center (non-holiday)! Let’s show our community and the patients in need of blood just how much we can do. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kathleen Luce (Kathleen.Luce@redcross.org) about joining the team.
It’s not every day that we do something that has such a lifesaving impact. We’ll be looking forward to seeing you at the blood drive.
