Kilted Against Covid-19

Members of the Sarasota New World Celts organized and participated in a blood drive today. With local counties in dire need of blood and blood products during the pandemic Coronavirus COVID-19, the Suncoast Blood Bank brought one of its mobile units - appropriately named B Positive - to the Bradenton home of husband and wife Michael Ward and Kimberly Gonzalez on Saturday, April 11, 2020. The couple and New World Celts dedicated themselves to coming up with a way to give to the community while still practicing social distances, and contacted Suncoast Blood Bank Senior Donor Group Representative Cindy Winning. Working together over the past month, they secured a mobile unit, staff, friends and family - and Smokin Momma Lora’s BBQ Food Truck to sustain the generous donors and staff with Lora’s delicious pulled pork, baked beans and coleslaw. Safeguards were put into place to ensure everyone was fully compliant with CDC recommendations and included only allowing two donors at a time, taking the temperature of each donor prior to entering the bus, wiping beds and equipment with envirocide, putting the squeeze balls into rubber gloves and disposing between patients, and providing masks for everyone. Thirteen people filled the time slots between 10 AM and 2 PM.
