Opportunities to give blood June 7 and August 9
Every day, patients require blood or platelets to help fight cancer, to replace what is lost in a trauma or to treat a chronic disease. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church has teamed up with the American Red Cross to host two blood drives on Thursday, June 7 and Thursday, August 9 from 2-8 p.m. at 26001 Muirlands. Childcare is available to donors between 3 and 5 p.m.
Donating blood is an easy and safe way to save a life. Donors should set aside approximately 45 minutes for the appointment although the actual “draw” time averages just 8-10 minutes
