ISF Annual Blood Drive

March 9th, 2019

The Isabella Santos Foundation Annual Blood with the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) began in honor of Isabella who’s life benefited from frequent blood transfusions.  CBCC is like a family to us and we will never forget their support and dedication in increasing Isabella’s quality of life. Our next Blood Drive is scheduled for March 9th from 7:30am-5:00pm.  This will be our largest blood drive yet with locations and mobile units across the region.  We hope you will join us to help honor Isabella’s life and legacy bringing in a record number of blood units for our community on this day.

Join us as we team up with Community Blood Center of the Carolinas on Saturday, March 9th, to host blood drives throughout the region on what would have been Isabella’s 14th birthday to honor her life and legacy.

Celebrate a life by saving lives.  We look forward to having your support and continuing this tradition year after year.

Why do we support CBCC?  As the primary blood supplier to the region’s patients and hospitals, it was very important in Isabella’s life to have local resources to count on every day.  CBCC supports our local hospitals by providing blood needed to treat community patients.

Who does CBCC help?  In our community, there are countless stories of patients battling illness.  A common element in many of these stories is blood – red blood cells, platelets and plasma.  The availability of blood products is often the difference between life and death.  Every time you donate blood with CBCC, you’re supporting the life of someone in our own community; a young cancer patient, an African American with sickle cell disease, an adult undergoing a transplant, or an accident victim.  Supporting CBCC saves local lives and keeps families whole.  Together, we work to strengthen the bonds of community.

Help save lives year around!  Contact CBCC to make your appointment to give blood or platelets at your convenience and take a look at public drives coming near you.  It’s amazing to see donors who donate blood or platelets year round in honor of Isabella!  Donating and want to send in your photo to show your support?  Email your photo to Maitland Danner so we can show your support on our Facebook and Twitter.
