Retire United is sponsoring a BLOOD DRIVE, but EVERYONE is welcome and encouraged to donate.
Please CLICK here to schedule an appointment. Donate Blood to receive a special Halloween t-shirt - while supplies last.
Retire United members will be stuffing Halloween treat bags for the children residing at our partnering Domestic Violence shelters. You’re invited to drop off some Halloween candy or treats, when you arrive to donate blood.
Why Donate Blood?
It’s estimated every three seconds someone needs blood. In fact, one out of every three people will need it before the age of 72. That could mean you or a loved one. Unfortunately, less than 5% of the eligible population actually donates.
Each day, blood centers must collect 300 - 350 pints of blood in order to maintain a stable area blood supply. Because the need for blood is constant and ongoing, and at times can even be critical, community partners and donors remain a reliable source to help ensure that blood is always available for patients who need it.
Do you have a friend or relative who has been using blood or will be in the near future? You can donate at any donor center or blood drives – make sure to choose “Replacement” at time of donation.
I hope to see you next month – at our Blood Drive!
