“Blood donation is a generous act that can only be accomplished by those who unselfishly give the gift of life and Ross Athletic Supply along with Arkansas Blood Institute and Fort Smith Harley-Davidson have joined a partnership to take that volunteerism to another level by raising a monetary donation while saving lives to benefit the Children’s Emergency Shelter,” said Danny Cervantes, executive director of Arkansas Blood Institute.
Arkansas Blood Institute’s volunteer donors provide every drop of blood needed by patients in more than 40 hospitals statewide.
