Many Americans nationwide have been donating blood to ensure a sustained and secure blood supply for everyone. Together with The Blood Connection, these donors are ensuring that the safest possible blood is readily available whenever and wherever needed, according to the American Red Cross.
“We all expect blood to be there for us, but barely a fraction of those who can give do,” Red Cross officials said. “Yet sooner or later, virtually all of us will face a time of great vulnerability in which we will need blood. And that time is all too often unexpected.”
St. Luke’s Hospital is helping make sure that blood is available by sponsoring a blood drive with The Blood Connection on Thursday, Jan. 5, from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Call 828-894-2408 to schedule a time convenient for you. Free pizza will be served, and donors can choose to receive a free T-shirt or movie tickets.
