Your help is vital to protecting your community's blood supplies for cancer patients, burn victims, accident patients and others facing surgeries. Chances are that you or someone special to you will need a blood transfusion during your lifetime. The blood supply is totally dependent upon volunteers who will take a few minutes to roll up their sleeve and donate blood.

Blood donation is a rewarding civic duty. Many people wish they could be more active in civic activities but can't because of time restrictions. However, you can donate blood in less than an hour and make an impact that can last a lifetime for someone.
