Were you aware that a pint of blood can save up to three lives? According to the New York Blood Center, 4.5 million Americans receive blood transfusions each year. Donors help save the lives of cancer patients, accident, burn, and trauma victims, transplant patients, mothers delivering babies, newborn babies, surgery patients and others in need.
Get into the holiday spirit and start the season of giving by donating an invaluable gift during Southampton Hospital’s Blood Drive on Thursday, November 6, 2014. From 7 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., stop by the Hospital to donate blood, and you’ll receive a massage discount coupon. Donors must be between the ages of 17 and 76, be in good health, and weigh over 110 lbs. Those looking to donate must bring a valid photo ID.
