Security Self Storage held a blood drive at two of its Florida locations on Saturday in recognition of January as National Volunteer Blood Donor in Month. The company partnered with The Community Blood Center, an affiliate of the NCH Healthcare System, which worked with local businesses to offer fun venues, donor gifts and raffle prizes for participating blood donors.
The Jan. 17 blood-drive events were co-sponsored by InTroubleZone Productions and John Marazzi Nissan. Successful donors received several free gifts from local businesses as well as discounted items. They were also entered into a drawing for more than 30 prizes at each location from hair, nail and beauty salons, restaurants, hotels, Naples Zoo, Publix, Super Target, Home Service companies and more. Refreshments were provided by Stevie Tomato’s Sports Page.
The Community Blood Center’s goal is to encourage more people to give blood and make life-saving a habit. Details regarding locations, gifts and prizes can be found at www.givebloodcbc.org.
