Red Cross urges summer blood and platelet donations to prevent seasonal shortage

Eligible donors can choose their day to help save lives during “100 days of summer.

100 days of hope.” campaign

 

(May 18, 2015) — The American Red Cross urges donors to choose their day to give hope to patients in need by donating blood or platelets during the “100 days of summer. 100 days of hope.” campaign, officially sponsored by Suburban Propane.

 

“Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and vacation season, and the start of a seasonal decline in blood and platelet donations,” said Jerry J.K. Tillery, CEO for the Alabama and Central Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico and Southern Blood Services Regions. “By choosing a day to give blood or platelets, volunteer donors can give hope and help maintain a sufficient supply for patients in need.”

 

To encourage donations around the Memorial Day holiday, those who come to give blood or platelets from May 23-25 will receive a Red Cross RuMe tote bag, while supplies last.

 

Summer vacations and travel can contribute to less availability for people to give blood or platelets. In a spring survey of Red Cross blood and platelet donors, nearly 90 percent indicated plans to take vacations this summer. However, patients don’t get a summer holiday or vacation from needing lifesaving blood. The Red Cross relies on volunteer donors for the 15,000 blood donations needed every day to support patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide.

 

As official sponsor of the summer campaign, which begins Memorial Day weekend and runs through Labor Day weekend, Suburban Propane will support an advertising public awareness campaign about the constant need for blood and platelet donations, and encourage employees and customers to give. Additionally, Suburban Propane employees will volunteer at Red Cross blood drives and facilities nationwide in one of the largest national volunteer commitments to the Red Cross Blood Services from a corporate partner.

 

“The Suburban Propane family is proud to support the mission of the Red Cross and help ensure that blood and platelets are available for patients in need during the challenging summer months,” said Suburban Propane’s Chief Operating Officer Mark Wienberg. “By partnering with the Red Cross, we are able to continue a noble cause that improves the lives of those in our communities.” 

 

The Red Cross has touched the lives of many Suburban Propane employees including Debbie Traub. In May 2014, her 74-year-old father fell from a ladder while power washing his home and suffered life-threatening injuries. He spent 20 days in the intensive care unit and received many blood transfusions. Traub said that she now knows the importance of giving blood and makes a point to donate in honor of her father at the Suburban Propane headquarter blood drives. Her story is just one of many reasons Suburban Propane continues to advocate for blood and platelet donations to the Red Cross.

 

“Suburban Propane is the steadfast conduit to mobilize its employees, customers and community leaders nationally to support the Red Cross and the blood needs of communities we serve across the United States,” added Donna M. Morrissey, director of national partnerships for the Red Cross Biomedical Services. “Through the unwavering commitment of Suburban Propane, the lifesaving blood and platelet donations made to the Red Cross may help families stay together, patients recover and people survive.”

You are about to become a part of one of the best communities in the nation!

Every year, groups of volunteers from across North America come together to make
miracles happen for kids. The entirely volunteer-run programs donate the proceeds they
raise to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in their communities and to charities that
help sick and injured children globally. Models for Miracles is growing and reaching
more lives each year!
At its core, Models for Miracles is about mentoring, leadership development, and
growing future givers. It is about providing opportunities for individuals to be engaged
and connected to an event that is all about helping sick and injured children. Volunteers
spend time organizing the event, recruiting models, and raising money for sick and
injured children. All that work culminates in a fashion show event that not only includes
anyone who wants to model but also provides education and raises awareness about the
services provided by CMN Hospitals (and international charities that help sick and
injured children) to the participants and audience members.
Models for Miracles started in Wichita, KS in 2009 and is an opportunity for individuals
to (1) engage in leadership opportunities, (2) serve their community, and (3) raise money
for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (in North America) and sick and injured kids
globally.
The premise behind Models for Miracles is simple. Create a fun, exciting fashion show
where anyone who wants to model can—regardless of size, experience, age, or
exceptionality. Models each sells tickets to the show and are provided with an outfit or
two from participating boutiques to model in the show.
Models for Miracles is about empowerment, service, leadership, and helping others in our
community. We believe in the power of paying it forward!

(Elkton, Fla.,)- The First Tee started in 1997, with a home office located at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. In just under 20 years The First Tee has expanded to about 200 chapters across the United States and four international locations.

The purpose of The First Tee is to give young people of all backgrounds and opportunity to develop, through golf and character education, life-enhancing values such as honesty, integrity and sportsmanship. The organizations accomplishes this goal by teaching participants about The First Tee Nine Core Values, and Nine Healthy Habits. There are over 300 children actively participating in The First Tee programming, which includes golf and life-skills classes.

One of the main goals of The First Tee of North Florida is to give every child the opportunity to play the sport of golf. The easiest way to support this goal is to become a First Tee of North Florida Ambassador Member. The cost of the membership helps to maintain this goal that no child gets denied access to The First Tee program for an inability to pay.

Some of the benefits of becoming an Ambassador Member are a foursome golf certificate for The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village King and Bear, The Official Golf Course of The World Golf Village Slammer and Squire TPC Sawgrass Dye’s Valley Course, all at a discounted price. These are just a few of the benefits that come with being an Ambassador Member of The First Tee of North Florida.

Ambassador Membership costs $125 for an individual membership and $175 for a joint membership.

1 in 8 Americans has Alzheimer’s disease, but they aren’t the only ones affected. 15 million family members provide the majority of in-home care for their loved ones with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.


It’s a tough job, not just because the hours are long, but because the disease is complicated. Each stage of Alzheimer’s causes changes in behavior and care needs, so caregivers are always in need of new information and resources.

That’s why the Department of Health and Human Services created alzheimers.gov—one user-friendly online place with all the best information available from government and leading Alzheimer’s organizations.
