This year 2020, Sunday, August 23, 8 am to 4 pm at Waterline Marina Resort, 5325 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach.
Donate blood this weekend and help people and animals. Wildlife Inc. is asking for your help in raising money to operate their education and rehabilitation center on Anna Maria Island.
If you have had COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) and made antibodies, your donated blood plasma could save lives.
The special blood drive is sponsored by Suncoast Blood who offer a free COVID-19 antibody test, a free T-shirt, and Waterline Resort who are offering a chance to win a weekend stay at the Marina Resort and Beach Club. $100 will be donated to one of three charities that you choose.
Your participation helps fund the non-profit organization Wildlife Inc., which rescues and treats more than 3000 birds, mammals, and reptiles each year and releases as many as possible back into the wild.
