One donation of blood can save up to three different lives.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
You don't have to be a doctor or a nurse in order give the precious gift of life and health.
Giving blood is giving life. With emphasis on the giving spirit of the holiday season, what better a time to both figuratively and literally give a hand to those in need of a life-saving donation?
NMS Properties, Inc. has teamed up with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive on Friday, November 22nd in front of Luxe @ Broadway, on the corner of Lincoln and Broadway in Santa Monica, CA. Appointments are available between 12:30 and 6:30 pm.
“This is a community event and not just for employees or our Santa Monica apartment residents,” says Penny Lane Emerson, Marketing Manager of NMS Properties. “We are hoping that as many people as possible will RSVP and come out to get screened and make their donation if they are eligible. Hopefully, people realize that taking 30 minutes out of their day can mean adding years onto someone else’s life.”
As an incentive, NMS Properties will be entering each resident that is at least screened into a drawing for a $300 rental credit. In addition, any non-residents will be entered into a separate drawing for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card.
Fresh Brothers will be sponsoring the drive by providing pizza to donors.
The NMS Properties blood drive corresponds with the American Red Cross’ Give Something that Means Something campaign, which runs through January 6, 2014 and encourages community members to donate blood or platelets for hospital patients in need.
RSVP to BloodDrive(at)nmsproperties(dot)com to schedule your time to be screened and potentially save up to three lives with one donation of blood.
