Thank you for your lifesaving donations!
We want to thank the 13 donors who stepped up to give blood at our blood drive on September 8. You are all heroes! Your donations resulted in 16 units of blood, and because a single donation can save three lives, you have helped to save 48 lives.
There was an emergency call for blood donations this summer, and when we heard about it, our team decided to host a blood drive with United Blood Services Arizona to help the cause. We made it fun with a raffle for tickets to the University of Arizona football games, and thanks to you, the generous blood donors from the community, we were able to reach 60% of our blood drive goal. Our blood drive is an annual event, so we hope we can count on you to join us again next year — let’s tackle our goal and go for 100%.
Remember, blood is perishable, and there is no substitute for it, so donors are needed year-round — consider donating more than once this year to really help boost the blood supply in our community and across the nation.
