YOU CAN HELP!!!
Blood and platelet donations decline during the summer months, especially around holidays like Independence Day. Holiday travel causes many donors to be less available to give and many hosting organizations postpone blood drives while people are on vacation. In fact, more than 40 percent of blood and platelet donors indicated plans to travel this Independence Day holiday.
These factors often contribute to seasonal blood shortages, but with your support and that of the community, it can be ensured blood is available to help save lives this summer.
