Giving Blood

without comments

Today I spoke with a woman about blood supply shortages.  And I just thought that it was worth reminding people that the summer months tend to see a drop in the over all blood supply.  Local blood banks would be happy to receive donations from fine folks like you.  So if you’re the type to go and do that sort of thing, here’s your nudge to make the trip this month.

If you’re in Chicago like me, LifeSource would be happy to see you.  And Heartland has several locations throughout Illinois.  The Red Cross also accepts blood donations and has centers nationwide.

Because blood has a limited shelf life, it is ideal for people to donate throughout the year to keep supplies strong.
