The Eagles are one of the NFL’s most charitable teams. They are always willing to pitch in and lend the community a hand.
So it should come as no surprise that the Eagles recently hosted a community blood drive. The organization collected 90 pints of blood, which has the potential to help up to 270 patients, according to a press release. The blood drive occurred on May 21 at Lincoln Financial Field and was the second one in the past two months.
The Eagles also collected 74 pints of blood, which has the potential to help up to 222 patients, on April 16. Team owner Jeffrey Lurie wanted to do his part to help sustain a stable blood supply for patients with life-threatening conditions during these uncertain times. The blood drive was co-hosted by the American Red Cross, with the support of Budweiser.
