Every two seconds, someone in America needs blood.  You can help by donating blood through your local American Red Cross.  Giving blood is easy, and it only takes about an hour.  A single donation can also help save more than one life.  By giving blood, you may help someone in immediate need such as a friend, neighbor, or even a stranger.  Be a HERO to someone in need and help change a life, starting with your own.

You can help us avert a summer blood shortage, by donating blood on Saturday, July 12, from 8:15am to 12:15pm at Mountain Vista Fire District, 1175 W. Magee Rd.
