January Blood Drive Success

Michael and Laurie Lien

Our January blood drive was a great success. There were 66 units of blood collected, which means over 190 people will be helped by your donations. The next blood drive will take place on March 27, from 7 a.m. until noon at MountainView Ballroom. All precautions will remain in place including limiting the drive to only SaddleBrooke residents by appointment only. As a blood donor, you do something extraordinary with each donation. You give families hope. You give patients courage, and you give those who need it most, life. Donors like you make all the difference. That is why your donation for this drive is more important than ever. The need for blood is constant eand only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

To schedule your appointment, go to their website at www.Redcrossblood.org or call their number at 800-733-2767. Also, you can start the donation process before leaving home by completing Rapid Pass online pre-donation and health history questionnaire from your mobile device or Blood Donor App on the day of your appointment. You can save up to 15 minutes. Learn more at www.Redcrossblood.org/RapidPass. We hope to see you all.
