Divers Direct Heads Fourth Annual Blood Drive : Divers Direct, the World's Largest Retailer of Scuba Gear Announces the Success of Their Fourth Annual Blood Drive in West Palm Beach

Share Article

In 2005, Divers Direct began an initiative to raise their customer’s awareness about the importance of donating blood. Not knowing what to expect, they held a two day “Blood Drive” event at their West Palm Beach dive center. Seeing the enthusiasm and willingness of the Scuba community to take part, inspired them to make it an annual event.

With a bit of promotional work and the help of our customers, this year we were able to help the Florida Blood Center collect several additional pints of blood, which will be used to directly aid people in the South Florida region.

"This is becoming a tradition and we look forward to the enthusiasm and support expressed by our fellow scuba divers," said Terry Schaefer, Manager of Divers Direct's West Palm Beach dive shop. "With a bit of promotional work and the help of our customers, this year we were able to help the Florida Blood Center collect several additional pints of blood, which will be used to directly aid people in the South Florida region."

The company offers each eligible donor a coupon worth 20% off any single scuba gear item in return for their blood donation. But Schaefer believes it is more about helping others and said, "I think the biggest appeal is that this blood drive helps those in our personal community and could even help save the life of someone you know. Who doesn't want to help their community in that way? We divers are all about protecting the reefs, the environment and our fellow humans!"
