Bob Boast Volkswagen (BoastVW.com) is again partnering with Cruise Planners to host a Blood Drive at the dealership on November 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This will be the third blood drive at Boast VW chaired by Anne Gautreau of Cruise Planners, a long-time blood donor who met Boast VW president Steve Bierwirth through Manatee Chamber of Commerce.
“Donating blood is a great way to help the community,” Gautreau said, “and we’re happy to offer new and returning donors this convenient location for OneBlood’s Big Red Bus®.”
“Keeping a good local blood supply is critical for providing good health care,” Bierwirth added, “and that is something we really want to support at this critical time.”
OneBlood serves multiple hospitals in the Tampa Bay area with blood products, including Blake Medical Center, Manatee Memorial Hospital, Lakewood Ranch Hospital and South Bay Hospital in Sun City.
Donors will receive a wellness checkup, including temperature check, a COVID-19 antibody test, and iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening, along with a free OneBlood fleece blanket and goodie bag from Cruise Planners.
Appointments are encouraged and can be made using sponsor code #60550 through https://oneblood.org/donate-now. For additional information, contact Gautreau at email@example.com.
Bob Boast Volkswagen is located at 4827 14th St. West in Bradenton. A standalone new and used VW dealership, Boast VW partners with several area nonprofit organizations to support the community.
