Band Aid For Burn Survivors is a long-running project of the Winston-Salem Jaycees, in support of the Jaycee Burn Center in Chapel Hill, NC. It’s where we, the Jaycees, bring the community together to support a worthy cause and rock out at the same time. The name of the event has been changed from Band Aid for Burn Victims to Band Aid for Burn Survivors in 2012. In 2014, the Winston-Salem Jaycees added an additional burn center, the Wake Forest Baptist Health Burn Center in Winston-Salem, NC to increase the local impact of the project.
Local bands donate their time and talent, local businesses donate monetary support to become sponsors, and volunteers donate many hours to put the entire event together, making each year’s show even more of a success than in years prior.
North Carolina has only two burn centers, the Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Chapel Hill Medical Center and the Wake Forest Baptist Health Burn Center. Local community hospitals can treat first-degree burns and some second-degree burns – but third-degree burns require the kind of expertise only found at a burn center like these.
