Aviation Mall will be hosting a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Thursday, June 29th from Noon to 6 p.m. across from Regal Cinema.

Marshall & Sterling Insurance is partnering with Common Roots Brewing for the second year in a row for this blood drive in loving memory of Anjelica Zingarino.  Anjelica worked at Common Roots for many years and her co-workers were like family to her.  Anjelica Zingarino was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in April of 2021.  After a hard-fought battle and extensive stay at Sloan Kettering, Anjelica sadly passed away 10 months after her diagnosis.  During her treatment Anjelica received two units of blood a day. This helped prolong her life and helped her fight aggressive cancer while she was receiving treatment.  This is why she is being honored with an annual blood drive.

While Anjelica was receiving treatment, there was hope that she was going to receive a stem cell transplant. Unfortunately, Anjelica was not able to receive a stem cell transplant and her family and friends learned how difficult it was to find a donor match. Be The Match will be present at this blood drive with information and to answer questions regarding marrow transplant donors. at this blood drive. Be the Match connects patients with a matching donor for life-saving marrow transplants. They also provide patients and their families with one-on-one support, education, and guidance before, during and after transplant.

Donors at this blood drive will receive a coupon for a pint at Common Roots Brewing.  In addition, all donors will receive a $10 gift card by email to the merchant of your choice. Plus, donors will be automatically entered for a chance to win a backyard theater package, including a laser wireless projector and screen, a smokeless firepit and more!
