Thousands of people donate blood in our area each year, and their generous gift has saved countless lives.
But, the need for blood is constant.

“During the busy summer season, the blood supply often suffers,” she said. “With donors on vacation and preoccupied with other summer activities, collections tend to take a dip.”
