BloodSource must collect about 700 units of blood per day to meet local demands. However, 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. One donation has the potential to save as many as three lives. Consider donating blood on Tuesday, August 22 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. or 12:15 to 2:30 p.m. at the Folsom Public Library. To make an appointment to donate visit www.bloodsource.org/drives and enter blood drive code D327. Call BloodSource at 1-800-995-4420 for questions about donation eligibility and more information.
