DEADLINE TO SET UP BLOOD DRIVE IS AUGUST 1
Help save 3 lives by donating blood. Businesses can organize their own blood drive, attend a community event or schedule blood donation at a Michigan Blood location. Anyone can donate on behalf of a company regardless if they are an employee or spouse of an employee. Businesses can hold multiple blood drives and employees can donate more than once (once every 8 weeks).
In partnership with Heart of West Michigan United Way, we are raising money to help reduce poverty in Kent County. All gifts made to Heart of West Michigan United Way will stay here in Kent County and will be invested into programs that help increase family stability, educate youth, and build financial security for individuals and families. Every $375 raised can provide rental assistance or intervention to keep a family in their home. Every $780 raised can provide job skills development to a person who is out of work or underemployed. Every $1,000 raised can provide access to math and science camps for middle-school youth. Anyone can donate on behalf of a company regardless if they are an employee or spouse of an employee.
