COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Carolina Breast Friends, aka The Pink House
1607 E Morehead St. Charlotte, NC 28207
OneBlood is partnering with area Cancer Centers, Radiology Clinics, Imaging Centers, and Breast Cancer Awareness Organizations to offer a Community Blood Drive in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are times during breast cancer treatment when a patient may need to receive blood. It is so important to make sure that we keep our blood supplies up so that we do not experience a shortage!
OneBlood wants everyone to know that it is extremely safe to donate blood! They will be practicing social distancing and taking temperature before anyone is allowed to enter the donation bus, as well as requiring all of their staff and donors to wear masks.
The blood drive usually lasts between 5 and 8 hours. The date will be Wednesday, October 7 and the donation bus will be in the back parking lot at Carolina Breast Friends. The hours of operation will be announced in the next few weeks.
All donors will receive 2 pairs of OneBlood Cancer Awareness Socks: 1 pair of Breast Cancer Awareness & 1 pair of Childhood Cancer Socks.
Plus, each participant will receive a wellness checkup that includes a COVID-19 antibody test, blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening!
