WEEK 43 OF ACTION – DONATE BLOOD
Every day in Palm Beach County, approximately 400 pints of blood are needed in hospitals and emergency treatment facilities for patients with cancer and other diseases, for organ transplant recipients, and to help save the lives of accident victims.
Blood is traditionally in short supply during the winter months due to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January, in particular, is a difficult month for blood centers to collect blood donations. A reduction can put blood inventory at a critical low.
There is no substitute for blood — it only comes from generous donors. That’s why your donation is so important. One pint of blood can save three lives.
This new year, we are focused on helping others. A great way to continue this generosity is to donate blood this month. Click here to find locations in Palm Beach County.
