Donating blood can save a life

Submitted By Carmen Herlihy

Did you know that someone in the United States needs blood every two seconds? And that more than 32,000 pints of blood are needed every day across the country? When you donate blood, you may be saving someoneÕs life -- an estimated 4.5 million Americans would die each year without life-saving blood transfusions.

What a lot of people may not realize is that donating blood is a relatively simple process and generally only takes about 10 minutes. But the life-saving benefits, of course, are enormous.

In Fremont, Pacific Commons shopping center is hosting a blood drive on Friday, June 15 for anyone would like to donate. Look for the American Red Cross Bloodmobile near the DickÕs Sporting Goods store from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the centerÕs website at www.pacificcommons.com.
