Blood drive happening today at Twin Cities
–January is National Blood Donor Month, and people under age 40 do not donate blood as much as the generations before them (according to Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services). National blood drives are being coordinated to replenish the supply and save lives. From surgery to fighting cancer to giving birth, blood donations are used to save around 12,000 lives a day. A lot of the medical care taken for granted would not exist without blood donations.
The Bloodmobile will be parked in front of the Founders Pavilion Medical Arts Center today, Friday, Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Twin Cities Community Hospital located at 1100 Las Tablas Road in Templeton.
