Delivering Hope with a Red Cross Bloodmobile
American Red Cross - Ohio Buckeye Region
Every dollar counts! You can help save lives by supporting the final push toward a new Red Cross of Central Ohio Bloodmobile. Your gift of $20 or more will be doubled with a $1 for $1 match (up to $15,000)!
The Red Cross must respond at a moment’s notice to deliver blood to individuals who are sick or injured, making every opportunity to collect blood critical. While 67 percent of the population is eligible to give blood in the U.S., only 3 percent donate annually. A new mobile unit in central Ohio will increase everyone’s access to a donation drive across all 27 central Ohio regional counties—as some areas do not have space to hold traditional blood collection events.
Whether or not you give blood, you can help. Your support of this Better Together project will go directly toward a new Red Cross of Central Ohio Bloodmobile. The Red Cross has already raised $245,000 of $275,000 needed. All donations of $20 or more will be doubled with a $1 for $1 match (up to $15,000) until November 6! Your gift will help us drive the Red Cross past the finish line and DELIVER HOPE!
"As an 18-gallon donor and 30+ drive sponsor, I know the importance of the Bloodmobile visiting workplaces, county fairs, and even the home of someone holding a blood drive to remember a loved one’s battle with disease. With your gift, you have invested in the actual unit AND in the constant request to our Central Ohio Blood Heroes to help their neighbors by giving the gift of life. It will save lives and “Deliver Hope".
Along with many of my fellow board members, who also have personally donated toward the new Bloodmobile, please accept our sincerest appreciation."
