The Blood Alliance teams up with Second Harvest Food Bank

Supporting The Blood Alliance (TBA) in the month of November means you can help nine people with one blood donation! TBA is donating $1 to Second Harvest North Florida for each blood donation made at any of our donor centers throughout the month of November. Not only does one blood donation save three lives, but each blood donation in November will generate six meals for our local community in need. One Dollar donated to Second Harvest generates six meals or the equivalent of two days of food for a person in need. TBA is additionally donating $5 for every 50 HERO Rewards Points donated back by donors through our eStore this month. But wait, there’s more! Comcast has partnered with TBA to also make a financial contribution towards this community give-back.

Members of TBA’s staff will additionally be volunteering at Second Harvest’s annual turkey distribution day at Everbank Field on November 18, where more than 2,500 turkeys and all the fixings are expected to be distributed.

To help TBA give back to Second Harvest, donate blood during November at any TBA donor center (this promotion does not include blood drives on bloodmobiles). The blood center located nearest you can be found at iDon8 (TBA’s new free app) on your iPhone or Droid, or by visiting www.igiveblood.com. To make an appointment to donate blood, please visit: www.igiveblood.com, use iDon8, or call 888-99-TBA-HERO (888-998-2243).
