Bio: About Founded in 1995. The Blood Drive Co-op's name is derived from an experience donating blood. When you donate blood you are giving a physical piece of yourself back to your surrounding community. Mission Striving for Social Justice through Education/Expression/Outreach by providing an Inclusive and Accessible Art/Music/Community for Everyone to Share. Description Throughout many years the Co-op has taken on many forms and housed in several locations under the understanding that you have to adapt to meet the needs of the people. In the past, it has offered various programs including a teen outreach programs that provided a safe haven for youth to see concerts free from drugs and alcohol with proceeds going to different non profit organizations to raise awareness for issues stemming from the struggle for social justice. This time around, the Blood Drive Co-op has it's own building and is in a position to offer more than ever before. The infrastructure of the organization has been completely redone to onboard more programs and offer more outreach in the hopes of helping as many people as possible. The newly reformed Blood Drive Co-op includes it's original founder Jason Palmari as Director of Operations and Alexander Garzone as Public Relations Manager/Outreach Coordinator. Strong alliances with local arts/community organizations and local businesses are helping to insure further growth. We are currently seeking Team Members/Volunteers etc. to help broaden our organization.
