Jun 25 all-day
Second Gear
Sunny summer days make the perfect backdrop for outdoor adventures in the mountains you love. National Trails Day falls on the first Saturday in June – along with Land Trust Day! Conservation land trusts like Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy play a critical role in protecting and managing land and water resources that benefit you and millions of people in the Southeast. We are so grateful to local businesses who have stepped up to pledge matching gifts and other ways to support SAHC on Land Trust Day – Saturday, June 5 – and throughout the entire month of June!

Second Gear – Nonprofit of the Month = SAHC

Second Gear in Asheville, NC is donating 1% of proceeds from all sales during the month of June to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy – their Nonprofit Partner of the Month. PLUS – as Land Trust Day sponsors, Second Gear will donate 10% of proceeds from sales on Saturday, June 5. Get the outdoor gear you need at a great price, and help support local conservation efforts while you do it – it’s a win-win for everyone!

Donor Center Hendersonville: Critical Need Donate Blood
Jun 25 @ 7:00 am – 7:00 pm
Donor Center Hendersonville

KEY FACTS: 

  • In the past few days, hospital partners are reporting they are using blood at a much higher rate than normal. When demand is high, and the supply is critically low – that is a dangerous equation for the community.
  • Because of the critically low supply, The Blood Connection (TBC) is now having to back-order blood products. This has affected 12 hospital partners so far.
  • 48% of days this month, TBC DID NOT collect enough blood to cover hospitals’ needs. For comparison, in May of 2020 (during the pandemic) TBC collected enough to cover those needs 84% of the days.
  • There is a high likelihood that TBC will have to start rationing blood by the end of the weekend.
  • Heading into a holiday weekend – hospitals are stocking up their blood supply. TBC has already not been able to provide those products.
  • The community is the ONLY solution to this dangerous problem. The blood supply for local hospitals is in the community’s hands.

others who need blood.  Support cancer patients by donating blood at any of these donation opportunities
during the month of June.
