Giving Back: Community Blood Drive at Buff Whelan Chevrolet

Successful blood drive at Buff Whelan

We would like to thank to the community for helping us to have such a successful blood drive at Buff Whelan Chevrolet on December 1st of 2017.

We want to express a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who came out to our blood drive— it was a tremendous success! We collected 172 pints of blood. With each pint being capable of helping three people, that is 516 lives saved!

That brings our grand total since starting our series of seasonal blood drives 14 years ago to — drumroll, please — 10,220 pints. We’ve done the math; this means 30,660 lives saved!

From the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough for the kindness and generosity of all our friends and neighbors who came out on December 1st to make a difference with us.  We look forward to seeing you all at our next blood drive on March 2nd.

If you’re interested in donating blood at this upcoming event but haven’t before, make sure you follow these guidelines:

  • Eat a healthy meal and avoid fatty foods
  • Wear a shirt that exposes your elbows or can be easily folded up past your elbows
  • Bring a valid form of ID that verifies your age, such as a driver’s license; you must be at least 17 years of age
  • Don’t come if you’re feeling ill

Together, WE CAN make a difference!
