There’s no question that donating blood is a heroic act; making anyone who donates blood a hero. This year be a community hero by making a blood donation that will help save lives right here in our community. The community requires 400 blood donations a day to keep up with the demand for blood. One donation can help save up to three lives. Be a hero in your community, donate blood and become a blood donor advocate!
