We are hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross on May 23rd!! For those of you that do not know, we would not have our beloved Jim Williams with us today without the gift of blood donation. Disturbing to think about but a city the size of Charlotte tries diligently to maintain a 3 day supply of blood.For the past year, Charlotte has been maintaining about a day and a half of blood supply.3 out of 5 people will need blood in their lifetime.One victim of a major trauma can result in a person requiring hundreds of liters of blood which drops the reserve levels dangerously low.For those of you who are “scared of needles”, we will also have 3 red cell donation appointments available. This is a much smaller needle and your blood goes back into you after the red cells are extracted. You must be at least 5ft 5 inches tall to donate red cells.This is a way to literally save someone’s life without spending a dime. I wanted to give you all first pick at the appointment times before we solicit the public.Go to: redcross.orgClick on the Donate Blood TabSearch the zip code 28277On PAGE 2 you will see the May 23rd Century 21 Real Estate Consultants drive.
