YMCA of the Suncoast hosting more blood drives in September

September blood drives

The YMCAs of the Tampa Bay are continuing to work together with OneBlood and LifeSouth to address the ongoing need for blood donations on Friday, September 25. This is just one of the ways the Y is working with community partners to meet critical needs during these challenging times.

The YMCA of the Suncoast, Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, and YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg have partnered with OneBlood and LifeSouth to host additional donation drives at YMCA locations across Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties to ensure ready blood supply for the community:
