Virginia Blood Services states that only 37% of our population is eligible to donate blood, and less than 10% donate annually. Someone needs blood every two seconds. This includes the precious children of the mothers we support. Children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery need blood and platelets from donors of all types, especially type O.
This December, join WPER as they partner with Virginia Blood Services to collect 400 units of blood. Tell them “PER sent you!”
