Parrot Heads give blood and more

Parrot Heads in The Villages surpass donation goals

The Villages Parrot Heads have taken its mission of “partying with a purpose” to a new level.

Club president Mark Woodland said the club contributed more than $200,000 in cash, blood donations and in-kind donations in the first half of the year—the most the group has done in that time frame.

The club hosts events and meets at “phlockings” once a month and incorporates a charitable aspect along with the socializing. Woodland said part of what makes this year so successful is how eager its 1,300 members are to get back into routine.

“We put a lot of events on hold when the pandemic started,” said Woodland, of the Village of Gilchrist. “We had our first golf cart poker run in March after a three-year break, which raised more money than I expected.”
