Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc., the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc., and the American Red Cross partner on national blood drives initiative
The Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc., the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia, Inc. and the American Red Cross announce a new five-year partnership and the launch of national blood drive and educational campaign that will enhance awareness about sickle cell disease while addressing critical blood supply needs. The initiative will also target African-American blood donors and highlight the need for a stable supply of blood donors of African descent. Through collaboration with community-based organizations, advocacy groups, colleges and universities, hospitals, and others, this partnership will help to ensure patients have access to lifesaving blood products.
The annual goal of the campaign is to mobilize 100 blood drives (with a minimum of 30 units collected per drive) targeting African-American donors across the nation. Over the five-year partnership, it is anticipated that upwards of 15,000 blood donations will be made, helping to save thousands of lives.
“Sickle Cell Disease Association of America is excited about this new partnership and the impact it can have on saving lives,” said SCDAA President/CEO Beverley Francis-Gibson.
