Our first blood drive was held on November 14, 2007. Due to the success of the event, we again hosted a blood drive on June 5, 2008. Thanks to our donors, we were able to help over 100 local recipients!
Kool 108’s Lois Mae along with Memorial Blood Center helps to make this day run smoothly. We have a live radio broadcast with refreshments in our reception area, partly sponsored by our local Cold Stone Creamery. The exceptional staff from the blood center takes each donor into a private area in their portable RV where they are asked questions and the donation is taken. The whole process from beginning to end takes less than 45 minutes!
Statistics show that every 2 seconds someone in the United States needs blood. But only 5% of the eligible population donates blood in any given year. When you give blood, you give someone another laugh, another hug, another chance.
