â€œHave you saved a life lately?â€ asks Marcy Todd, volunteer coordinator. â€œMaking a blood donation is just that! In fact, one productive unit of blood can save as many as three lives when the components of the blood are broken down. How can you even think of saying â€œNoâ€ to a request that has such far reaching and life-giving results? How much easier can it be?â€
The business express sponsor for the drive is the Golden Touch Day Spa. They will provide special savings coupons for those who donate, as well as featuring a special massage give-away prize.
Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment prior to the day of the drive in order to keep the flow moving in an efficient manner. This can be done by going online to www.givelife.org to establish a profile or by calling the volunteer office, 330-596-7822 and the staff will be happy to schedule an appointment for donors.
â€œWe are urging everyone to really consider donating. We hear all kinds of reasons a person cannot donate, but in reality when only 5% of the population donates, there are not enough reasons to cover the number of individuals who elect not to donate! It is a choice. So make the right choice and donate on October 8th.â€
