For Marisa’s Mission, March is an important month – in fact, it is Marisa’s Month! March is when we celebrate Marisa’s birthday, and remember all the incredible gifts she gave to us, her family, friends, colleagues, and community. Which is why we implore YOU – part of this important community – to help us continue to make March a special one for Marisa’s Mission.
Normally, during Marisa’s Month, we partner with local businesses to help us raise awareness and funds for our cause through various events and promotions. However, this year we are acutely aware that so many of our beloved local businesses have been hit hard by the Covid pandemic and that many are doing everything they can just to survive. March 26th marks the 5th anniversary of Marisa’s passing, and to honor her this year we are giving back by hosting our very first Blood Drive with the American Red Cross!
Everyday blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. A single pint of blood can save up to 3 lives, and can be transfused in it’s original form or used to help multiple people when separated into it’s specific components of red cells, platelets and plasma.
When you donate, you’ll not only have the great feeling that you did something for someone else, but also have peace of mind learning more about your own blood health – it is literally a full health screen of your blood, meaning you’ll be able to learn your blood type AND if your blood contains the Covid-19 antibodies. Plasma from antibodies-positive donations may help current coronavirus patients in need as well.
Must be 18 years or older.
Must be registered ahead of time. No walk-ins will be accepted.
All persons are required to wear a mask.
