“The nation’s top communications provider hosts in-store blood drive for Hurricane Dorian Victims.”
REV opened its storefront in the Mall at Marathon to dozens of Bahamians who were ready to offer the ultimate gift to their compatriots many of whom were devastated by the effects of Hurricane Dorian in the Northern Islands. The communications giant collaborated with a non-profit group, Friends of the Blood Bank who independently arranges blood drive to source the blood bank at the Princess Margaret Hospital.
Director of Friends of the Blood Bank, Mark Palmer said, “Last year we needed 26,000 pints of blood at the PMH and we only got 4,000. So we started [this group] so that we could do blood drives for PMH… help them with that and educate the public on giving blood.”
