We asked and you all delivered! To celebrate Smoothe turning three, we hosted our very first blood drive with The Blood Connection on Saturday, January 2, 2021. Our goal was to register 27 people and we were able to register 31!
Almost three-fourths of the donors were first-time donors with The Blood Connection or it was their first time ever giving blood. “WOW,” is really all we can say!
The Blood Connection collected 27 units of blood, helping save 81 lives!
We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the new year or to celebrate three wonderful years with all of you. Thank you for supporting us and this initiative.
Everyone who donated on January 2 received a $10 gift certificate to Smoothe and a $20 Visa gift card from The Blood Connection.
