WILLIAM JEWELL BLOOD DRIVE "SAVE THE DATE"

Your blood donation can make a significant impact in someone’s life. Blood is needed for many different reasons. Your donation could be used for the little girl with a rare blood disorder, a family member fighting cancer, a new mother suffering complications from child birth or a friend involved in a car accident. A supply shortage means that blood may not be available when it’s needed most. One donation can help saveup to three lives because your blood is separated into its components – red cells, plasma and platelets – to treat patients with different needs.
