New Vitae Hosted a "Thanks for Giving" Blood DriveDecember 3, 2019
Thank you to everyone who supported New Vitae Wellness and Recovery’s “Thanks for Giving” Blood Drive, benefitting Miller Keystone Blood Center. On November 27th, the day before Thanksgiving, the blood mobile was able to collect 11 units of blood from 13 donors! Several of the individuals who donated were first time blood donors who expertly navigated the process. An Amazon gift card was raffled off to assist with holiday shopping, and the donor with the fastest donation time also won a gift card to Wawa!
Did you know that just one donation of blood can save three lives? There are also a variety of health benefits for blood donors, including the proud or happy feeling that is associated with helping others. Blood donors receive a free health check prior to giving blood that can detect health challenges or risk factors. The donated blood will also be screened for various illnesses to encourage treatment and recovery.
New Vitae Wellness and Recovery wishes to thank Miller Keystone Blood Center, the blood mobile staff, and everyone who attended our last drive for 2019! We look forward to hosting additional drives in 2020!
