Often overlooked, our community needs blood! Acts of Kindness along with its partner Vitalant Community Blood Services have been the driving force behind one of the most successful blood drives in Coconino County, the Zombie Blood Drive. In fact, in 2018, the Zombie Blood Drive was named the most creative blood drive in the world by ADPR, the international division of America’s Blood Centers.
In 2019, the Zombie Blood Drive had 112 Zombie blood donors- helping AOK achieve 108% of its goal! Of those, 28 were first time blood donors, and you know what they say…Once a Zombie Donor, always a Zombie donor! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
All of us at AOKFLAG are so thankful for all of you who showed up at the Spring Zombie Blood Drive, which was on May 1, 2020. Many community members stepped up to meet the need during these challenging times. We really do love all of our Zombie donors and hope to see you at our even bigger blood donation event on Thursday, October 29 for the 7th Annual Zombie Community Blood Drive.
We would also like to give a shout out to all of our sponsors, DoubleTree by Hilton, Butler Subway Cafe, Warner's Nursery & Landscape Co., Northern Pines, Dairy Queen, Grimaldi's Pizzeria, Swire Coca-Cola and Hwy. 89 Safeway as well as our Community Members who made the masks!
Our 2 day goal for Zombie Blood Donors was 104 and we had 112 Zombies- coming in at 108% of goal! YAY! 5 more Zombie donors than last year!
28 of those were first time blood donors, and you know what they say…Once a Zombie Donor, always a Zombie donor! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Next year the drive is on Thursday, 10/29 and Friday, 10/30. Since Halloween is on Saturday, I think we will have a great turnout of people wanting pre-Halloween festivities to keep the party going!
AOK believes that helping Arizona keep a healthy blood supply for those in need is part of our mission. We have partnered with Vitalant (formerly known as United Blood Services), one of the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit community blood service providers.
Feel free to drop us a line anytime!
