Every two seconds someone in this country needs blood. St. Luke’s Hospital is helping make sure that blood is available by sponsoring a blood drive on Thursday, July 13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

By sponsoring a blood drive, St. Luke’s Hospital is helping save and improve the lives of individuals in need of blood. In addition, their sponsorship ensures that a safe blood supply is available at all times for all members of the community.
