The Birds are doing their part to help out during the COVID-19 crisis, and Thursday they held another blood drive with the Red Cross.
Some details via press release:
In an effort to help maintain a sufficient blood supply and to avoid a potential shortage during these uncertain times, the Philadelphia Eagles and the American Red Cross, with the support of Budweiser, hosted its second community blood drive at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday, May 21. The blood drive collected 90 pints of blood, which has the potential to help up to 270 patients.
The first Eagles Community Blood Drive, held on April 16, collected 74 pints of blood, which has the potential to help up to 222 patients.
Add those two drives together and it’s 164 pints of blood with the potential to help more than 450 patients.
Nice job by everybody involved.
