Give blood now

It doesn’t take a disaster for someone to need blood.
One in seven people entering a hospital will need blood to survive. Cancer patients, premature babies, mothers after delivery, trauma and burn victims, those undergoing transplants and so many more people will require a blood transfusion this week alone.
Do your part and give back to the community at an upcoming blood drive in your area.
