Blood Donations are Needed to Maintain the Blood Supply
This holiday season, you can make a difference in the life of a local hospital patient by donating blood and giving the gift of life! Donating blood takes about an hour and is a simple way to give an amazing gift to hospital patients in need. It is especially important to donate blood during this time of year, as poor weather conditions and busy holiday schedules can often lead to a decrease in the number of blood donations which could lead to a potential blood shortage.
Please plan to donate blood at an upcoming blood drive:
Reinbeck Community Blood Drive, Monday, December 12, 2011 from 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM at Reinbeck United Methodist Church, West & Spruce Streets.
