Did you know you could help save up to three lives by giving blood? We have a critical need for blood donations in our community to help people like Hannah:

“On May 22, 2022 I was a passenger in a serious car accident. I had many serious injuries including multiple fractures in both femurs, a broken pelvis, jaw, arm and sternum. I was bleeding out internally and my right lung was collapsed. It is truly a miracle I survived. The most important thing keeping me alive was blood transfusions. I was receiving blood as I was airlifted through to 3 days after my surgeries. The hospital had only 4 units of my blood type and I used all of them. I would really appreciate it if you could come and donate or just raise awareness to the cause. Donating blood truly saves lives and this is a great opportunity to give back!”
