Stop & Give

December 29, 2011

Stop & Give is a national blood drive to honor anyone affected by motor vehicle collisions, to build our community blood centers and to promote awareness about safe driving. In 2009, a random act of recklessness led to the death of Dr. Laurie Sherlock’s first child. The Sherlock’s started this event to encourage random acts of generosity to help the communities we live in.

There are over 39,000 deaths from automobile accidents annually in the US. Stop and Give blood drives give grieving and recovering communities the means to do something positive with their pain. 

How can you get involved?

Donate blood during the 2012 Stop and Give campaign at any of our STBTC neighborhood donor rooms or mobile sites.  The campaign runs through February 29, 2012.

Redeem your  blood donation points for a Stop and Give T-shirt and help spread the word!

Honor a loved one. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a motor vehicle accident, you can hold a blood drive in their honor. Call 1-800-292-5534 ext. 1308 to start the process.

Tell us your story or share it on StopandGive.org.

By spending about an hour of your time, you have the ability to save three people’s lives. You never know when tragedy might strike your family, your neighbor, yourself. Stop and Give now to help those who desperately need blood.
