All donors will receive a cup of coffee and an Amelie’s Treat! Did you know our community needs over 400 blood products daily? The need for blood never takes a vacation – not even during the summer months. In fact our local blood supply decreases in June, July and August due to families taking vacations and the loss of high school and college blood drives. Visit one of our five donor centers or donate at one of our mobile blood drives. Sign up at www.carolinadonor.org or call 704.972.4700. Thanks for rolling up your sleeves to support our local patients. none
