Jaden Elijah Smith Legacy Blood Drive Is Tuesday

I fully support various blood drives because I know firsthand the importance of blood donations.  Many years ago, my father needed weekly blood transfusions due to a medical condition.  Without the kindness of others, those blood transfusions would not have been possible.  So anytime I become aware of blood drives, I try my very best to support.  I ran across a blood drive in honor of Jaden Elijah Smith with the American Red Cross on Facebook this morning.  It will take place on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at the Northport Civic Center, which is located at 3500 McFarland Blvd, Northport, Alabama 35476.  You will need to sign up for a donation time by clicking this link.  According to the Facebook Event Page for the Jaden Elijah Smith Legacy Blood Drive, it noted that “July 7th is Jaden’s Birthday! What better way to celebrate in his memory than to give back to those in need.  Blood Drive - American Red Cross has set up a legacy blood drive in Jaden’s memory. Our goal is to collect 200 pints of blood.  We will also be taking donations of NEW kid’s sunglasses & NEW kid’s pajamas, any size or gender to donate to Children’s Hospital of Alabama.   Also, if you have pop tabs that you’ve been collecting, we will collect those on this day as well to donate to the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. More info to come. Copy & paste this link to sign up: https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/drive-results?zipSponsor=Jaden”
