is National Volunteer Blood Donor Month
Each year the President of the United States proclaims January as National Volunteer Blood Donor Month. The American Red Cross would like to invite you to celebrate by donating a pint of blood and helping save a life.
The need for blood is constant, and volunteer donors give life-saving blood that is vital for patient care across the United States. Blood must be available before it is needed in order to help save the lives of people undergoing treatment for cancer, accidents victims, and even some premature babies. Every day the American Red Cross counts on the generosity of blood donors to meet the needs of these patients.
Donating blood is quick, simple, and safe and a wonderful way to give the gift of life to a patient in need. On behalf of family, friends, and patients, the American Red Cross would like to thank past blood donors for their generous contributions and encourage new donors to give. Please call Brenda Kaschmitter at 962-3251 or Cheri Holthaus at 962-2327 to schedule an appointment to donate blood on January 20th. Together, we can save a life.
