BloodSource must collect about 700 units of blood per day to meet local demands. But only 38 percent of people in the U.S. are eligible to donate, and less than 10 percent actually do. Consequently, the lives of many depend on the generosity of a few.
Please consider being one of those generous enough to donate blood on August 23 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Folsom Public Library. One donation has the potential to save as many as three lives. To make an appointment to donate visit www.bloodsource.org/drives and enter blood drive code D327. For eligibility questions call BloodSource at 1-800-995-4420.
