State Farm® Agent Elvis Gates Hosting Local Blood Drive


Did you know that one pint of blood can save three lives?  Due to the COVID pandemic, blood supplies across the country are running critically low. State Farm is helping raise awareness by sponsoring the American Red Cross' “SleevesUp” Campaign.


On Wednesday, September 30, Long Beach State Farm Agent Elvis Gates is partnering with American Red Cross Blood Services and is encouraging community members to make an appointment to donate blood.  


“Our drive is being held on the last day of State Farm's national "Sleeves Up" campaign,” said Gates. “State Farm agents across the country are asking donors to roll their sleeves up and donate blood during this critical time. Please help make my office drive a success!”


The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Across the country, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
