Written on: November 18, 2020 by ICM
Suburban Propane Partners, L.P. has joined forces with the American Red Cross and country music superstar Martina McBride to remind folks to spread comfort and joy through the vital gift of blood donation this holiday season. The Red Cross is in need of blood donors across the country, even through the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a thank you to donors, Suburban Propane is a chance to win an Outdoor Living Experience with a propane-powered pizza oven, fire pit, outdoor heater and stipend towards propane through Dec. 15.
Country Music Superstar Martina McBride joins The American Red Cross and Suburban Propane in encouraging Americans to give comfort and joy this holiday season through blood donation.”
“Through our SuburbanCares initiative, giving back to our local communities is a top priority, and what better way to do that than to donate blood. Suburban is delighted to sponsor a Propane Experience Giveaway to help motivate more people to give the gift of life this holiday season,” said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson for Suburban Propane.
Martina McBride has also reached out to country music fans and all eligible individuals: “If no one has ever asked you to give blood before, I’m asking you to give blood—especially during this trying time,” McBride said.
“While we have certainly experienced unparalleled hardships this year, we have also witnessed great acts of kindness—like COVID-19 survivors rolling up their sleeves to share their antibodies with patients battling the illness,” said Paul Sullivan, Senior VP, American Red Cross. “Donating blood, plasma or platelets is an act of kindness that truly makes a lifesaving difference.”
To make an appointment to donate blood, use the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
