I started donating blood at the Red Cross when I was in high school. I went with my mom who emphasized the importance of donating blood products for people in need, who once included my own grandmother. As I entered the healthcare workforce I saw first hand the importance of these blood products for patients I saw reguralrly post surgery, accident, or diagnoses such as cancer.
I donate regularly but wanted to contribute further to this organization. Thank you so much for supporting me in this endeavor!
Each day, thousands of people – people just like you – provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world.
We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and blood. We learn or teach life-saving skills so our communities can be better prepared when the need arises. We do this every day because the Red Cross is needed - every day.
You, too, can join our team of supporters. Make a gift today to support our run in the 2019 Eversource Hartford Marathon. All funds raised will support American Red Cross humanitarian programs and services. An average of 90 cents of every dollar we spend is invested in delivering care and comfort to those in need.
