Our hearts go out to all those affected by the wildfires in California and the recent shooting in Thousand Oaks. November 8, Vitalant Arizona, formerly United Blood Services, sent O- and O+ blood products to our sister center for the shooting victims as we are the sole supplier to Los Robles Medical Center in Thousand Oaks. We’re asking donors across our state and the country to step up and help by giving blood in the coming days and weeks to support our communities in California impacted by these fires. This will help replenish the blood supply to ensure life-transforming donations are available for patients there as well as here in our local community as we prepare for Thanksgiving weekend, the longest holiday weekend of the year which brings a huge decrease in blood donations.
Time and time again we see it’s absolutely vital to continuously replenish the blood supply so we’re ready for any disaster, like the recent shootings and these wildfires, as well as every day emergencies and ongoing patient blood needs. Please take an hour or so of your time to help save lives today!
Donors will receive a voucher for a Pizza Slice and Soda, compliments of Fratelli Pizza Flagstaff! All donors entered into a drawing for a chance to win 1 of 3 Maverik Country Store $50 gift cards.
