The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas (CBCC) recently teamed up with the International We Love U Foundation to host a community blood drive as part of the “33rd Mother’s Love to the World Worldwide Blood Drive.”
“This partnership is very meaningful because not only are we saving local lives, but we are part of a global initiative to increase blood donations,” said Martin Grable, president and CEO of the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas. “The need for blood knows no boundaries, so we commend the International We Love U Foundation for their commitment to blood donation and to helping save lives here locally and in each community they serve worldwide.”
Members of The International We Love U Foundation are carrying out this blood drive campaign in more than 150 countries and 2,200 locations throughout the world throughout the month of July. The blood drive in Charlotte collected 23 units of blood.
“The members in various countries of the world will become one minded and agreed to give life with the heart of a mother who loves her family” said Zahng Gil-jah the Chairwomen of the International We Love U Foundation. “Every volunteer activity has great meaning, but blood donation is much more joyful and worthwhile because we can save lives directly.”
