News re: smart car Jacksonville winner!



"Car keys for blood donor 6/7/2011

The Blood Alliance, Northeast Florida’s sole provider of blood to area hospitals, together with the “smart center Jacksonville,” a Brumos Company, will present car keys to the winner of its smart car promotion at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday in the main lobby of The Blood Alliance at Deerwood Park.

“We had about 25,000 donors participate in the smart car promotion that started in December last year. We have been pleased with the turnout, especially over the holiday season, when donations tend to decline.

Our need for blood is constant. We must collect 360 pints of blood every day to meet the demands of our area hospitals, and we depend on our community to make that happen,” said Valerie Collins, COO of The Blood Alliance.

“The Brumos Companies are proud to partner with the Blood Alliance for the smart car campaign.

Working together to raise awareness for the importance of blood donations in our community is a smart partnership,” said Jeff Bender, general manager of Mercedes-Benz of Orange Park and smart center Jacksonville.

The Blood Alliance provides blood products to more than 20 hospitals and medical facilities in 10 counties in Northeast Florida and regions of Georgia and South Carolina.

It provides a blood supply to the regions it serves and is a member of America’s Blood Centers, a national network of independent community blood centers responsible for nearly half of the nation’s blood supply.

 The local organization opened in 1942 and is a nonprofit community blood center licensed by the FDA and accredited by the AABB, formerly the American Association of Blood Banks"
