The Blood Connection Partners with Community Groups to “Share the Love” by Sharing Life in February

Girl Scouts – Mountains to Midlands

THE CAROLINAS AND GEORGIA (February 16, 2023) Many have heard of “love languages”; the ways we share and receive love from those most important in our life.  One of those love languages? Acts of service.  What better act of service than donating blood with The Blood Connection (TBC) and their partner organizations? Donating blood is a compassionate way to show our neighbors and community just how much we care.  This February, TBC is partnering with Texas Roadhouse and the Girl Scouts – Mountains to Midlands council to provide fun and rewarding opportunities to donate blood.


 “The best gift you can give doesn’t come wrapped in a bow, or with a bouquet of flowers,” said Delisa English, President and CEO of The Blood Connection.  “The best gift is the selfless act of rolling up your sleeve and donating blood, to give someone the precious life-sustaining resource needed to spend another day with their loved ones.”


 Partnerships like the ones mentioned allow TBC to reach a new group of potential blood donors: something that is becoming more and more imperative to combat the ever-shrinking blood donor pool.  The blood donor population is currently aging, in what has been deemed a “silver tsunami.” As the core group of blood donors gets older and is no longer able to donate blood, the younger generations are not choosing to donate blood as frequently, causing the blood supply to become unstable.  TBC is thankful for partners like Texas Roadhouse and the Girl Scouts, who choose to spread the word about the need for blood donors not just once a year, but all year-round.


 “The need for blood donors never goes away,” said English. “We’re hopeful that these partnerships will bring a flood of eager blood donors, both new and old, when our buses deploy across the region on February 23 and March 2.”


On February 23, TBC will host two separate blood drives with the Girl Scouts – Mountains to Midlands council.  As a thank you for donating, all blood donors at those blood drives will receive a box of Thin Mints or Samoas (while supplies last), plus a $30 eGift card.  For every blood donor, TBC will also donate $20 to the council.  Please see the details for the individual blood drives below:

Also, on February 23 and March 2, TBC is once again partnering with Texas Roadhouse for the “Hearts as Big as Texas” campaign.  Now in its fifth year, Hearts as Big as Texas brings more than 20 bloodmobiles out across the Carolinas and Georgia to make blood donation convenient and fun for community members. As a thank you for donating, all blood donors will receive a $20 Texas Roadhouse Gift card, a free appetizer coupon, plus a bonus $30 eGift card!  Participating locations include:
