Blood Drive October 2017

Blood Drive October 2017

The next Red Cross Blood Drive at Heartland will be held, October 24th in the HCA Gym from 2:30-7:00pm.

WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE BLOOD?

Your blood donation can make a significant impact in someone’s life. Blood is needed for many different reasons. Your donation could be used for the little girl with a rare blood disorder, a family member fighting cancer, a new mother suffering complications from childbirth or a friend involved in a car accident. A supply shortage means that blood may not be available when it’s needed most. One donation can help save up to three lives because your blood is separated into its components – red cells, plasma, and platelets – to treat patients with different needs.
