Avance Care Mallard Creek Hosts Blood Drive to Support the Local Supply Amid National Shortage


[Charlotte, NC] – [September 22, 2023] – Avance Care Mallard Creek, an innovative primary care practice dedicated to enhancing the well-being of the community, is proud to announce its upcoming community blood drive event. This drive aims to bolster the local blood supply and save lives, reflecting Avance Care’s commitment to the health and welfare of the communities it serves.

This blood drive represents a vital opportunity for patients and community members to make a positive impact by donating blood. The event is organized in collaboration with the Blood Connection, a non-profit organization on a mission to support healthcare partners with adequate, safe, cost-effective blood supplies and services. In addition to blood donations, participants can take advantage of the flu clinic, ensuring they are well-prepared for the upcoming flu season.

Lead Physician at Avance Care Mallard Creek, Dr. Lori Smith said, “I want us to be a trusted source for healthcare, as well as what’s going on in the community. This blood drive is a great opportunity to engage with the community and help meet a need we get passively and often take for granted. We assume blood will be there when we need it, but having blood drives is the best way to make sure it is available when it is needed.”

Dr. Smith added, “Without blood drives, we would have more shortages, sometimes in our own community. Blood drives will always be important because they help save lives. It’s that simple.”


Here are some key details about the blood drive:
