Piazza Seafood to Host First Annual Blood Drive

Local Seafood Company looks to give back during National Blood Donor Month

NEW ORLEANS, LA [January 14, 2019] – Someone needs blood every two seconds in the U.S. It is estimated that 95% of the population will use blood or a blood component by the age of 75, yet less than 5% of the eligible population actually donates.

Piazza Seafood will host its first ever blood drive on Monday, January 21 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the bloodmobile in front of Piazza Seafood, 1201 Sams Ave. The public is invited to donate and help the community out in this critical time of need. The seafood wholesaler and distributor will be giving all eligible donors 1lb of Papa Piazza Brand Shrimp, and The Blood Center will allow donors to select a T-Shirt, Family Blood Coverage or Heart Club.

Blood supply is often lower in the winter months as donations decrease with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, traveling, and inclement weather. Low blood donations result in a critically low supply while the need for blood and blood components remains constant.

Piazza Seafood is a local, family business that prides itself on core values. Those core values lead the way both in their operations, and their desire to help the community.

“Anytime a choice can save a life, we have a responsibility to take action,” expresses Nick Piazza, Shareholder and VP of Sales.

The Piazza family has been in the seafood business since the late 1800s. Piazza himself has followed suit, being involved in the family business since an early age. His father, Mr. Vincent Piazza, Jr. opened a small warehouse in 1988, which Piazza and brother, Bryan now actively run. Piazza Seafood has grown to serve thousands of wholesalers and individuals in the southern Louisiana, Mississippi, and Gulf Coast areas.
