One of the things I love about working for a nonprofit is the opportunity to support our friends and colleagues in making Columbia a healthier place. That's why I'm participating in the American Red Cross blood drive.
The American Red Cross is hosting a Family and Friends blood drive on Sept. 2, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. The need for blood is critical night now, especially over Labor Day weekend. By choosing to donate Sept. 2, you can help ensure there is enough blood available for patients who need it in our community.
Participating and supporting our friends and partners makes our work stronger and more sustainable. I always appreciate it when another group participates in our campaigns and events, and here is one chance to show South Carolina's Red Cross how much we appreciate them.
The drive is taking place at 7 locations throughout South Carolina (so you can participate even if you've already got Labor Day plans that are taking you out of town!):
To schedule an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Walk-ins are welcome.

Thank you for supporting the Red Cross and for keeping Columbia, and all of South Carolina, healthy!
