Fly Jamaica Airways is among the corporate list of sponsors providing support for the annual Gleaner Company's Blood Drive scheduled for Tuesday, September 29.

According to Damani Brown, marketing coordinator at Fly Jamaica Airways, they decided to partner with the media entity to encourage persons to not only practise healthy lifestyles, but to advocate how important it is to give blood.

"We are involved in a number of initiatives supporting health in the various locations where we operate. A part of our programme plan is to get involved in the communities and to build a connection with persons in these areas," Brown said.

Caribbean Airlines is also a sponsor and will be providing a round trip ticket to Ft Lauderdale.

Individuals names will be placed in a pool and the winner of this prize will be chosen.

The blood drive's goal is to acquire at least 100 units of blood. An invitation has been extended to all Gleaner employees and the company's subsidiaries, friends and relatives and corporate neighbours.

Other sponsors include Kardiotechnics, Oxford Medical Centre, Sampar's Cash and Carry, Triple Century Sports Bar, Spa Aesthetic, Gas Pro, Creation Foods, Salon Avonda, Usain Bolt Tracks and Records, Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel, Island Products, Jewel Resorts, Eaton's, Gray's Pepper Products, Lifespan Water, Vantage One Group, Super Touch Salon, Grene-Axe Pest Control, and Massy Distribution.
