Honda Barn giving back to the community with Red Cross blood drive

 

Stratham, NH 5/18/2020 - Honda Barn will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on June 26, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Honda Barn in their showroom.

 

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call Sheila Haas at (603)772-7300 x-145 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code (all one word) HONDABARN-STRATHAM 

 

"Hosting a blood drive coincides with Honda Barn's core values of giving back to the community," said Linda Murphy, General Manager. "With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor."

 

Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.

 

"The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood."

 

Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone and is often used to treat trauma patients.

 

Thank you in advance for your donation!
