Please Donate Blood
Give Blood Contact the American Red Cross or check the list of places on the Bulletin Board. Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation. When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group of people. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.
