The need for blood is constant. In New Hampshire, the Red Cross relies on our Bloodmobile to collect nearly 10 percent of our blood donations . Every single hospital in the state depends on the Red Cross to supply blood and blood products for patients in need. As such, the Bloodmobile is on the road every day playing a vital role in collection operations.
With a generous $10,000 matching gift from Associated Grocers of New England, we are that much closer to meeting our goal - We need your help to fulfill this matching opportunity. Through this match, every dollar donated to the New Hampshire bloodmobile will be matched by the company up to $10,000.
Our current Bloodmobile is aging - at over 17 years old, traveling more than 18,000 miles per year, to 250 drives, the time has come to replace it. The Bloodmobile suffers from many mechanical issues, worn interior and exterior, and often breaks down then forcing blood drives to be cancelled.
To solve this challenge, we have committed to raising funds for a new Bloodmobile, which costs the organization $275,000 to purchase and put into production. This match will bring us closer to getting a new Bloodmobile on the road in New Hampshire.
Join us by doubling your gift. Together we can make sure needed blood is on the hospital shelves, which helps save lives right here in New Hampshire every day!
