SunCoast Blood Bank to give free movie tickets to donors around Thanksgiving



Sarasota, FL- Sam Woolf, local singer-songwriter, donated his time to help SunCoast Blood Bank (SCBB) during the busy holiday months by taping a public service announcement for television. Sam and SCBB are asking blood and platelet donors to help keep the inventory of blood products ready and available for local patients in need.

SCBB must collect 150 units of blood every day, 365 days a year to meet the needs of patients in the community battling cancer, newborns in crisis, surgical patients, and those suffering traumatic injuries.  A complete list of official locations can be found on or by calling 1-866-97-BLOOD.
