All Hands on Deck–It’s Operation Blood Drive

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – It’s back for the 32nd time! The Blood Connection is partnering with WLOS ABC 13 in Asheville for Operation Blood Drive on June 27th, a day where we call on the community to step up and donate blood together. It’s a simple and easy way to give a life-saving gift to a neighbor. Bring a friend and save even more lives!

This year, there are SIX locations, including the WLOS TV station! Every blood donor will receive an OBD t-shirt and $20 gift card.

DYK: TBC supplies blood to almost every Western North Carolina hospital. That means when you donate with TBC, you’re helping save lives in YOUR community. To learn more about which hospitals we serve, visit our areas of service page.
