2013 “Bring Back The Magic” Service Projects


Blood Drive


For the last seven years our blood drive has been the largest blood drive in the Keys put on by the Community Blood Center of Florida. Last year we collected an incredible 155 pints from the 181 attendees who attempted to give the “Gift of Life”. Donation appointments will be taken starting after Labor Day. Stay tuned for more information. Make your appointment early and help keep “The Meeting of the Minds” Blood Drive number 1 for the EIGHT year in a row!


Toy Drive


This will be our seventh year supporting the Salvation Army of Monroe County, benefiting the children of Monroe County including Key West. Please bring an unwrapped toy (don’t forget batteries) or school supplies to donate when you register. Age groups requested are infant-toddler and teenagers. If you are driving down the Keys, stop at the Homestead Wal-Mart or the Key West or Marathon K-Mart to pick up toys or school supplies. Collection boxes will in the registration area.


A great big thanks to all who have and will help make our service projects a success.
