From Live Well San Diego:
January is National Blood Donor Month, an opportunity for first-time and regular donors to make a difference in their communities. January is usually a difficult month for blood centers across the country due to fewer people donating during the holidays, poor weather and more people getting sick. Usage is higher while turnout is lower, which can put blood inventory at a critically low level.
Live Well San Diego Recognized Partner the San Diego Blood Bank must collect 350 blood components every day in order to meet the needs of San Diego County hospital patients who are battling life-threatening blood disorders like aplastic anemia, sickle cell anemia and leukemia, as well as those who need blood during trauma situations.
Make an appointment today to donate blood and you could save a life!
