On the first Friday of every third month, Buff Whelan Chevrolet holds a Red Cross blood drive and has since 2000. In the 17 years the dealership has been holding blood drives, we’ve had 9,624 people give blood and even more register, and we’re on track to get to 10,000 by the end of 2017!
The most recent Buff Whelan Chevrolet blood drive took place on March 3rd, and we collected blood from 214 donors. 12 were first time donors, and a record 21 donors were double red donors. Every blood donation is enough for up to three people, so the March 3rd drive saved 642 lives total.
Becoming a Buff Whelan blood donor has plenty of other benefits too! We provide free food and drinks to help you get your energy back after you donate, including a free slice of pizza from Holiday Pizza. You’ll also get a $10 off coupon for an oil change at Buff Whelan. You don’t have to drive a Chevy to get your car serviced by our expert service department!
