Blood Drive 2012 and Hurricane Isaac

Every year, hospitals and ER’s require hundreds of thousands of units of blood. Natural disasters like Hurricane Isaac have a double impact; they raise the need for blood, and at the same time, make it impossible for people in the areas affected to donate themselves.

Without donations from blood drives, lives are directly put at risk. Ten minutes of your time could save a life.

You can donate whole blood, platelets, or red blood cells. All of these are in vital demand. You can also register to be a bone marrow donor.

Please come out and donate. Bring friends and family. Every drop really does help.
