Quarterly, the Blood Connection brings the Blood Vessel by our Greenville location for our Greenville and Corporate Associates to give blood. Yesterday we had sixteen people who tried to give blood and thirteen who were able to give.
According to the Blood Connection’s website someone needs a blood transfusion every three seconds, and one in ten patients entering a hospital will need blood. A fact I wasn’t aware of is that blood is only good for 42 days, so donors are needed EVERY day to ensure a stable blood supply. For more information on how you can get involved and give blood please visit www.thebloodconnection.org
