September is Sickle Cell Awareness Month. Many sickle cell patients in our community rely on blood transfusions for their treatment. Donate blood with the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas to help sickle cell patients in your local area.
More public drives can be found at Community Blood Center of the Carolinas’ web site. CBCC has donation centers in Charlotte, Concord, Gastonia, Hickory, and Union County. Call 704-972-4700 or go to www.carolinadonor.org to make an appointment at any location.
