Gladstone Blood Drive
In honor of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan* * *
The Blood Centers of the Pacific solely supports 41 hospitals and over 500 pints a day are required every day to meet the needs of Bay Area patients and to be ready for emergencies. However, of those people eligible to donate blood, less than 4% do. But we all expect blood to be there for us if we ever need it. So please consider donating at the blood drive if you can. Attached are the eligibility guidelines—much simplified! And yummy refreshments will be provided!
Approximately half of the nation's blood supply is collected at blood drives like ours. Please register online at BloodHeroes.com Sponsor Code: Gladstone
As always, it is not just donors we need. Volunteers are also needed to greet donors, ensure that required forms are completed, and that all donors rest and eat before returning to work. Please contact Sylvia Richmond if you can volunteer.
