Dan Perkins Subaru takes pride in staying connected with the community and decided to host the blood drive now, during the holidays, because it is a time when many people are looking for ways to help those in need. Giving blood is the perfect way to give a gift that is always needed – a gift that money can’t buy.
According the American Red Cross - a 125-year strong movement of service - “Every minute of every day, someone needs blood... When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood… The American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The American Red Cross donor embodies this principle.”1
By hosting a convenient way to give back to the community, Dan Perkins Subaru is hoping to energize their employees, customers and local residents to join in the mission of the American Red Cross to maintain a safe and stable blood supply.
The American Red Cross blood drive will take place at Dan Perkins Subaru, located at One Boston Post Road in Milford, CT, on Thursday, December 5th from 11am-4:15pm.
