Concord, NH (PRWEB) April 01, 2014
Banks Chevrolet will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on April 24, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Donations make it possible for the Red Cross to provide blood for patients in nearly 3,000 hospitals across the United States. Help save lives by donating your blood to the American Red Cross at the dealership, located at 137 Manchester St., Concord, NH 03301.
This is the first time Banks Chevrolet has ever hosted a Blood Drive but they are expecting a great turnout from the community. Banks Chevrolet will be offering a free "wash and vacuum " service to anyone who donates blood on that day, as well as a $10 service coupon. Furthermore, Subway will be offering a free 6" sub to anyone who donates blood on that day.
Banks Chevrolet service manager Rick Gauthier has been spearheading the event planning. Always charitable and active in his community, Gauthier became inspired when he heard the story of Jacqueline Rogers back in January. "I was watching the news one morning and I saw a story about an 8 year old girl from Boston," says Gauthier. "She was scheduled to go in for life saving heart surgery, and the parents got a phone call on the way to the surgery and were turned around because the hospital was low on blood. That made me want to go donate some blood." Gauthier continues, "At that point I figure we have over a hundred employees and thousands of great customers, so we could make a big impact." More information about Jacqueline Rogers is available at this link.
"We hope for, and are preparing for a large crowd at this event," said Brad Solomon, Customer Care Manager at Banks. "We encourage those who live in Concord and surrounding areas to come participate in this worthy cause."
