Your Lifesaving Blood Donation is Needed Now!
Miller-Keystone Blood Center has issued an urgent appeal for Blood donors of all Blood types.
Blood donations traditionally decrease during the summer months due to family vacations and increased travel, combined with accidents and seasonal illnesses. However, more than 450 donors are needed every day in our community to help in the care of cancer patients, accident victims, premature infants and others requiring lifesaving transfusions at our regional hospitals.
Just one major trauma or disaster could have devastating effects on the Blood Center’s ability to provide for the transfusion needs of the community. While we’ve had a decrease in the number of people donating, the demand at our community hospitals remains steady. Please remember that Blood cannot be manufactured, it can only come from the kind generosity of volunteer Blood donors. If there is ever a time to donate, now is that time.
Individuals registering to donate now through June 30 will receive 100 Bonus Points that can be redeemed for a variety of items in Miller-Keystone’s online Lifesaver Rewards Store.
