Red Cross Blood Drive at Keenan Honda Dealership

Red Cross Blood Drive

Did you know that one blood donation has the potential to save three lives? On July 15th, we are hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive at our Keenan Honda dealership in Doylestown,PA from 10am-3pm. The Red Cross receives eighty percent of its donations through community organizations, companies, and schools, so our involvement helps them to save lives every day! Currently the Red Cross delivers 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, and the blood donations they receive go to 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers in the United States.

Blood donations can help a wide variety of hospital patients from newborn babies to cancer patients to those suffering from injuries from an automobile accident. According to one hospital, in order to care for all the patients in need of a blood donation they would need about 1,000 donations a day! So every donation makes a huge difference! In the summer the Red Cross has a harder time getting donors, so they need your help now more than ever. The process of a blood donation takes about an hour and fifteen minutes, but it only takes ten to twelve minutes for the blood donation itself. In that time, you will make a contribution to someone’s life that gives them the chance to live a long and happy life.
