Help Your Favorite Firefighters With This ConnectLife Blood Drive Challenge
Help your favorite firefighters win Darien Lake tickets! ConnectLife is teaming up with WYRK to help with the critical shortage of blood donations by awarding two local fire halls the opportunity to host a blood drive with WYRK.
The two top-nominated fire halls will compete by each having a ConnectLife Blood Drive. The fire hall with the most donors will receive a grand prize of Darien Lake tickets and a pizza party for their volunteer firefighters.
The real winners, of course, will be the patients who benefit from the blood donations. All blood donations at ConnectLife stay right here in Western New York, benefitting your friends and neighbors. The pandemic has affected blood donations like everything else, but our local blood supply has dipped to the point that it only would last three day without any new donations. In addition, blood donations must be used within 42 days, so there is a constant need for donors; one person can donate blood up to six times per year.
How can you help? Well, nominate your favorite fire hall below, but also consider donating blood today. You can walk-in or make an appointment, and there's no wait time needed after receiving your COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, or Janssen/Johnson & Johnson), according to ConnectLife's website.
