News 2 is partnering with Blood Assurance for the News 2 Gives Back 2 Save a Life Blood Drive to collect blood on Thursday, February 16th. There is a critical need for blood this time of the year so News 2 and Blood Assurance are making it easy for you to give as there will be multiple locations where you can donate.
Chief Meteorologist Danielle Breezy plans to be one of those donating. “I have been giving blood since I was in high school. It is a very easy way to give back to your community and you really do save lives. I am looking forward to being a part of our News 2 Blood Drive and getting my husband Joe Breezy to join the worthy cause and donate blood for the first time!”
And first-time blood donors like Joe Breezy are welcome!
