"2016 We're Still Here" Blood Drive

Howdy Phlock! It's that time of year again. I need your help! For the last TEN years we have been the largest blood drive in the Keys. Eleven years in a row has a nice sound to it! Last year we had 181 attendees attempt to share the "Gift of Life". From those that tried, we collected 172 pints. This was the fourth highest number of donations we had in all the years we've been doing this blood drive. 250 has a nice round ring to it…10 donors for every MOTM year. Just 10!!! Once again we'll have at least two, maybe three bloodmobiles sitting in front of the Casa on Seminole, Thursday, November 3rd from 9 am to 5 pm and on Friday, November 4th from 9 am to 1 pm. Please send an email to MOTMBLOODDRIVE@AOL.COM with your NAME, the DATE and TIME you would like to donate. Just in case I can talk the folks at Oneblood into doing another special LIMITED edition shirt for the participants, please INCLUDE a shirt size. So flood my inbox with those appointments!!! Everyone can take home a souvenir from Key West. You have a chance to do something extraordinary, leave a souvenir in the Keys, "The Gift of Life!" I look forward to getting an email from you and seeing you out in front of the Casa!
Thank you, Jeff Hoffman "Here We Are" Service Chairperson
