Midas of Richmond Really Gives Back to the Community

Midas of Richmond offered free oil changes last week to people who donated blood at donation centers set up by Virginia Blood Services at three of the auto service company's locations. Short Pump saw 200 people donate which is their largest single day turnout ever! Hull Street had 104 people donate which is the largest single day result that store has ever seen! And Colonial Heights had 71 people show up which is the second or third highest volume donor day they have ever had!

Prizes were given to donors who had given more than once a year. Blood services currently needs O negative, A negative and B negative blood donations. Officials are working ahead to ensure there is enough supply for the holiday period. Midas will conduct one more blood drive this year on December 5 and five more drives are already scheduled for 2010. Said Mark Smith, owner, “I will give away 375 oil changes anytime for results like this!”
