Red Cross Blood Drive - Did You Know?
*One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
*Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
*Blood cannot be manufactured; it can only come from volunteer donors.
*Adults have 10 pints of blood in their body, one pint is given during a donation.

Come join us for a blood drive on Wednesday September 4 in Stapleton Lounge, LeMans from 12-6pm! We have many appointments available and you can sign up at www.givelife.org with the sponsor code of smcnd.

Actual blood donation time typically takes less than 10-12 minutes.  The entire process, from the time one arrives to the time the donor leaves, takes about an hour. Just one blood donation can help save up to three lives!

If you are unable to give blood, consider sharing your time by volunteering at the tables in the Student Center Lounge during the drive.  You can sign up at the blood drive table in the atrium prior to September 4 or by emailing Jessica at jbulosan@saintmarys.edu  If you're looking for a way to give back without giving blood, please consider sharing your time with us!

Thank you for giving the gift of life!!
