Give The Gift Of Life At Parks Blood Drive

Parks will be hosting a Blood Drive on Thursday, February 28 and Friday, March 1, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Arsenal’s 3rd Floor Gallery.

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).




QUOTATION OF THE DAY

“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 - )
