Donations are the only way of obtaining blood – blood cannot be made! Blood donors play a vital role in the healthcare of patients in our community. 37% of the population is eligible to donate blood, yet only 5% actually do. We decided to change that… Twelve volunteers signed up and thirteen showed up to our February Unified Promise at the Bonfils’ Lowry Community Donor Center to give blood together as a Chapter. We highly encourage those who were not available on that date to visit Bonfils to give the gift of life. The need for blood is constant, so is the need for donations. Donating blood is one of the easiest ways to volunteer and give back to your community. You may even be a little nervous, but don’t worry! Giving blood is a safe, simple and rewarding experience.
13 volunteers gave a total of 45.5 volunteer hours for this Unified Promise.
