This year, the event is Thursday, July 10 @ NMHF.
This blood drive is named after Leadville’s Tommy Taylor. In 2007, Tommy survived a terrible car accident, requiring several surgeries and need for many units of blood. This blood drive was established by the Taylor family to help replenish blood centers to help save other lives.
“We were so grateful for the community support we received during that difficult time,” said Bunny Taylor, Tommy’s wife. “Everyone kept asking what they could do to help and this seemed like the best thing we could do.”
If you can’t make this blood drive, but would like to donor blood at another time, please contact Bunny at email@example.com or you may also contact the Bonfils Blood Center at www.bonfils.org. or (800) 365-0006, ext. 2.
