Help Save A Life! Did You Know?
• There is no substitute for human blood.
• Only 2% of our local eligible population donates blood each year. We need more eligible donors like you to change that statistic and make a difference!
• You cannot get an infectious disease by donating.
• The average adult has 8—12 pints of blood and can easily spare one pint.
• By donating one unit (that’s about one pint) of blood, you can help save several lives. How? By separating each donation into its components: red blood cells (for anemia); white blood cells (for leukemia); plasma (for burns); cryoprecipitate (for hemophilia) and platelets (for internal bleeding).


“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.”

Tom Stoppard

(1937 - )
