Good job, the local churches also have gotten together to sponsor Blood Drives this month. There is one at Immaculate Heart of Mary this Sunday at 9 AM. Years back I learned that one of the primary use of blood and blood products was to treat cancer patients , I learned that when my brother was ill with cancer. I had donated before, but withou much attention to it. I continued to donate after his death, with the hope and purpose in mind that I could possibly help someone else. I got the member for life t shirt after donating a while. I will be there on Sunday giving a pint, maybe we can all give. August is a crucial month of shortages for blood doantions.
