“As summer enters the last few weeks, many people are trying to sneak in their final vacations, summer activities, and enjoy time with friends and family. This becomes the most challenging time of the year to get residents to give blood,” states Lauri Hoffmann, Program Coordinator, Community Blood Bank. “The demand placed on the local blood supplies is unpredictable as some traumas will require up to 40 units of blood in addition to regular anticipated use such as surgeries, cancer treatment, and child deliveries. In a 30 minute time frame donors can provide lifesaving blood to 3 local patients and then do it all over again in 56 days. If a person is looking for a way to give back this summer, consider donating blood. The process is simple and could even save the life of someone in your immediate family, a loved one, or a neighbor. The action of donating could provide a lifetime of hope for someone critically ill. Join us at Take 16 Brewing Co. Friday, August 4 for the annual Pint for a Pint blood drive.”
