Stanford Blood Center Blood Drive
 Blood Drive: Sunday, Aug. 28,  9 AM – 3 PM  COF FLC GYM
 Every 3 seconds someone needs blood, but less than 3% of the population in the Bay Area donates blood. YOU can save a life!  
There is no substitute for blood. It has to come from one person in order to give to another. A critical number of voluntary donations are required every day to meet the need for blood in the areas Stanford Blood Center serves. However, they are consistently falling short, and falling short means we may not have enough blood for someone who needs it.  
To make an appt. for Aug. 28th:            
Log on to: sbcdonor.org  
Use sponsor code: 2109
