An Invitation to Donate Blood at the Blood Drive

blood drive

Blood….a gift for any time of the year.

When someone suffers a major injury or surgery, receiving a transfusion of blood can mean the difference between life and death, and that blood can only come from another human being.  Modern medicine can do some amazing things, but one thing it can’t do is make blood.  The only source of blood for someone in need is from a healthy person who is willing to donate.  Although nearly 40% of Americans could donate blood, only 10% of the population takes the time to donate blood.  Because of this lack of donations, the supply of blood available for those in need is often dangerously low.  Donating blood is a simple act of service that only takes about an hour and is relatively painless.  But in spite of its simplicity, it can save the life of another person.  Donating blood is critical in order for hospitals to have sufficient blood supplies on hand for when people need it.
There will be a blood drive at the Salina Stake Center at 98 West 400 North on January 14th from 1:00 – 7:00.  Please come and give a gift that will cost you only an hour of your time and will be priceless to someone in need.

This is a place where you can highlight your unique brand and offer specials and promotions. The interview/video can be short or long depending on what you want to do. It will then be featured on the Salina City website and other social media outlets.
