She has always been passionate about donating blood, knowing that such a simple act could save so many lives. Melissa donated for the first time at her high school blood drive. After graduation in 2010, she began working at Morton Plant Hospital in Guest Services where she was on the blood drive team—helping recruit donors, setting up for the blood drives and donating herself.
Melissa has now dedicated her life to speaking out against domestic violence and proudly works as an advocate for a nonprofit organization, Hands Across the Bay. Melissa says “My passion for recruiting blood donors lives on through our annual Hands Across the Bay blood drive. I hope you join me in giving the gift of life!”
Melissa recently hit her 15th donation milestone…giving back to help those in need just like she was.
