We need your help today!
As we all look forward to a time when life can get back to normal, the challenges of fundraising through a global pandemic persist.  Our home tours, Griffin Awards and education programming are still virtual and we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel our Time Traveling Gala for the second year in a row.  We miss seeing everyone!
Our fundraising has slowed down, but we haven’t!  Every month we send you an update on the work we are doing around the county, from trying to save a freedman’s cabin in Sandy Mush to fighting a demolition threat in Montreat and a whole lot in between, we are busier than ever!
Today we hope you will consider becoming a memberbusiness member or making an additional donation.  As we see demolition threats, large and small, pop up all over the county, we need your support more than ever!
Your support makes what we do possible.

Donor Turnout Hits Historic Low

The Blood Connection extends collection hours in response to urgent need

 

The Blood Connection, the community blood center, is seeing historically low blood donor turnout and has extended its center hours in response to this urgent need. According to the latest TBC data, local hospitals have consumed twice as much blood as the community has donated. If this trend continues, it could cause a blood rationing event or blood shortage for hospitals in this community. Donation centers are now open earlier and later to accommodate more blood donors.

Properly prepare to donate blood and help save lives
Apr 19 @ 10:00 am – 2:30 pm
Henderson County Offices

— Healthy individuals are needed every day to maintain an adequate
blood supply for patients in need. Once a donor has made the commitment to give blood, it is
important to take a few simple steps to prepare and help ensure a good donation experience.
Get a good night’s sleep, drink an extra 16 ounces of water, eat iron-rich foods to maintain a
healthy iron level and consume a low-fat meal before donating.
Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour. The Red Cross
encourages donors to give blood every time they are eligible.

When you make a gift of $10 or more by April 22, we will send you an exclusive UNC Asheville mask! Supplies are limited, so don’t wait to get your exclusive mask! To receive a mask, please be sure to complete the “incentive” field on the giving form.
