Wellness Wednesday: Blood drive goal still attainable
Whose life will you change? Click here to watch a short video.
The goal for the drive is 62 units of blood, and as of today, there were 54 donors already scheduled, with 23 appointments still available.
Every blood donation is an opportunity to help someone in need. Giving blood really does help save lives. Despite the fact that giving blood is easy, safe, and takes about 75 minutes, only 5 percent of eligible Americans donate blood. It is too easy to rationalize that someone else will fill the need.
