On Monday, April 9, you can save a life by donating blood at Central's semi-annual blood drive. Actually, your single donation can save up to THREE lives.
Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical, donation, and refreshments. The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the time you leave, takes about an hour and 15 min. Do you have 75 minutes to spare if it can save three lives?
Won't you consider giving the gift of life? Each pint donated can save up to three lives! There are three ways to schedule your appointment:
