Business

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY SEP 11, 2019

On Friday, September 20, Goodwill Manasota and SunCoast Blood Bank will officially launch a partnership effort to encourage donations of gently used items and of critically needed units of blood. The organizations will begin by bringing both the Goodwill “Giving Mobile” and the SunCoast Blood Bank “Bloodmobile” to the campus of PGT Custom Windows + Doors from 8am to 8pm, where leaders from both nonprofits and PGT will be in attendance for an informal celebration and brief remarks.

The organizations are currently seeking additional locations in order to hold “Change a Life, Save a Life” donation drives at least once or possibly twice per month. Already in the works are events at FCCI Insurance Group (November 14) and Booker High School (date TBA). While the September 20 event at PGT is limited to PGT employees, the public is welcome to donate during select future events. For more information or to inquire about becoming a “Change a Life, Save a Life” location, call 941-355-2721, ext. 163 or email pavitra.ciavardone@gimi.org.
