AVE King of Prussia Hosts Blood Drive to support Red Cross

August 10, 2018

AVE, a division of Korman Communities specializing in furnished suites and luxury apartments, announces it will be hosting a Blood Drive at its brand new, state-of-the-art rental community in King of Prussia, Pennslyvania, on August 29th from 2-7 pm to support the American Red Cross.

AVE is partnering with Wegmans, who will be providing complimentary snacks and beverages for donors at its Canteen Station. Wegmans will also be providing complimentary meals for Red Cross volunteers.

Tours of AVE King of Prussia’s luxury apartments, furnished suites, and amenity spaces will be available, as well as a raffle for donors.

AVE encourages its team members, residents, and partners to pre-register online for Rapid Pass to make a donation. The average donor cycle time takes approximately 1 hour, but only 45 minutes with Rapid Pass. The American Red Cross is hoping for 50 pre-registered donors.

To pre-register, log on to, select “Sponsor Code,” and enter “AVE KoP,” or call 1.800.REDCROSS and provide our sponsor code over the phone.

“Our teams are passionate about giving back to the communities in which we do business,” says Lea Anne Welsh, COO of Korman Communities and president of AVE. “We are so excited for this opportunity to partner with Wegmans and host a blood drive at our new community in King of Prussia to benefit the American Red Cross.”

“We are so excited to join the dynamic King of Prussia community,” says Kristen Mauro, General Manager of AVE King of Prussia. “Our team couldn’t think of a better way to kick off our outreach than to partner with Wegmans and host a blood drive to benefit the American Red Cross.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome AVE King of Prussia as a blood drive sponsor in our region,” said Alana Mauger, Communications Manager, Red Cross Penn Jersey Blood Services region. “This blood drive comes as the Red Cross faces an emergency blood shortage and is issuing an urgent call for blood and platelet donors to give now, so patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatment they need.”
