In a world where compassion and generosity make a tangible difference, the annual blood drive organized by PFARIA stands as a shining example of humanity’s collective power to save lives. Every year, individuals from all walks of life come together, driven by a common purpose: to contribute to the well-being of their fellow human beings. The remarkable success of our recent blood drive has not only renewed hope but also reinforced the belief that small acts of kindness can have an enormous impact.
The blood drive, which went down on Wednesday, May 17th, was a partnership between PFARIA, GAOR Glendale Association of Realtors®, Burbank Association of Realtors®, and CB Realty (Glendale).
The Generous Donors: The heart and soul of the blood drive were undoubtedly the selfless donors who stepped forward to offer the gift of life. Undeterred by the minor discomfort that accompanies the act of giving blood, it was great to see many of our members step to the chair, and among the many who participated was our very own CEO – Carla Dane, alongside many more, including Naomi Farley, Zabrina Carrol, 2023 President Kay Tolentino, Erik Okland and Jessica Lupian to name a few. Their commitment to helping others and their deep understanding of the urgent need for blood donations were awe-inspiring, and we can’t thank you enough for your unwavering support!
