Payin' It Forward For Connor:: The Connor Jones Blood Drive
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 10:00 AM - Monday, July 7, 2014 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
**Great news! We've had such a tremendous interest in donating blood for Connor that we now have an "extension" drive in Jacksonville, NC! Thanks to Connor's Uncle Daron, you have an additional chance to stop by and donate a unit of blood. See the above address for details. As ALWAYS, if you would like to donate in another city, select "remote ticket" and let us know when you donate! We keep track through the "remote tickets" so don't be shy- we are deeply appreciate of your commitment to Connor's vision!**
It is no mystery that Connor Mason Jones touched thousands of lives across the country. His short and impactful life serves as a motivation for so many of us to pay it forward and continue his legacy. Connor served as a "puzzle piece" in many of our lives- he fit into special places and stretched our hearts in ways we didn't realize had room to grow. It is our turn to "Pay it Forward"- Connor Style!
Join us by honoring Connor for his 5th birthday and participating in a local Red Cross blood drive and bone marrow swab. It is our goal to replenish the many units of blood that Connor needed during his stay in ICU, and we need your help! From 10-3 on Wednesday, August 28th, join us at Trinity United Methodist Church on Marine Blvd.
Here is how you can help:
1. Join us and donate a unit of blood!
