Give an hour, save a life
Life-saving process is convenient for donors
Donating blood isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s also surprisingly convenient. Most think about doing it, but time constraints seem to get in the way. What many don’t know, though, is that blood donors can save up to three lives by setting aside only one hour of their day.
There are a total of four main steps in donating blood: medical history, review of your health, donation and, best of all, snacks. The entire process-- from the time donors sign in to the time they leave-- takes about an hour. It’s that simple! An hour is small price to pay for such a profound impact on the community.
Donating blood is key to saving lives!
Visit the Auburn Community blood drive on Wednesday, May 27th from 2 pm to 7pm located at the Elks Lodge, 195 Pine Street and do your part to help the blood supply in your community. The upcoming blood drive will be held in support of long time community member Stephanie Clark who was recently diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. Please join us to support Stephanie and patients like Stephanie who rely on the generosity of lifesaving blood donors throughout medical treatments. A donor club has been set up in Stephanie Clark’s name; blood donations are welcome at the Auburn Community Blood Drive or any BloodSource Blood Collection Center.
This drive is sponsored by the Auburn Elks
