Blood Drive hosted at BRMC on March 14
Bradford, PA – Bradford Regional Medical Center (BRMC), in partnership with ConnnectLife, will be hosting a community blood drive on Tuesday, March 14. The blood drive will be located in the main lobby of the hospital and will run from 10 am to 3 pm.
All donors will receive a Fowler’s chocolate bar, a voucher for a buy 1 get 1 beer from Fattey Beer Co., only donors 21 and over are eligible, and a $5 lunch voucher for the hospital cafeteria. Every pint of blood donated can be responsible for saving up to three lives in our local community.
ConnectLife is Western New York’s only community blood bank which means every drop of blood donated remains local. The organization supplies about 70% of the local blood supply, supporting area hospitals such as Bradford Regional Medical Center, Brooks-TLC Health Network, ECMC, Oishei Children’s Hospital, Buffalo General Hospital, Millard Filmore Suburban Hospital, Eastern Niagara Hospital and Olean General Hospital.
Anyone can make an appointment at www.connectlifegiveblood.org with the sponsor code 000468 or by contacting Kim Murphey at (814) 362-8298. Walk-ins are also welcome!
ConnectLife helps people help others. As Western New York’s only community blood center and federally designated organ, eye, and tissue procurement agency, ConnectLife saves and enhances lives through the support and compassion of donors who graciously choose to give the gift of life. All of the blood that ConnectLife collects stays local, helping nearly every hospital in Western New York’s eight counties maintain safe inventory levels while saving them millions of dollars in out-of-state sourcing costs. And for every pint of blood donated, we save the lives of three of our neighbors. At its core, ConnectLife was created to serve—making the blood donation process as personal and painless as possible; helping organ, eye, and tissue donor families honor the wishes of their loved ones during an emotional time; working with schools to equip the next generation of donors with the knowledge they need to make lifesaving decisions; and supporting Western New Yorkers’ inherent desire to do good.
