May 16th 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm
38% of the population is eligible to donate blood. Fewer than 10% actually do.
This is a problem. Every day, many Americans depend on blood donations from generous volunteer donors for critical components of their medical care…it is truly the most personal natural resource.
On May 16th The Quail Club is hosting a blood drive in partnership with Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. From Noon to 6:00 pm at The Quail Club, friends and colleagues will gather and take about an hour out of their day to donate blood.
It’s easy to rationalize that someone else will fill the need, but when more than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day, each and every donation helps ensure that when someone in our community needs blood in an emergency, we will have some to give them. YOUR ten minutes in the donation chair matters to your community.
Save lives by making the commitment today: to donate yourself, and to ask your friends, colleagues, and loved ones to donate with you. There’s cookies – and the feel-good buzz of saving up to four lives – waiting for you on the other side.
