Training and Development Lunchtime and Evening Workshops
- Blood Drive
DONATIONS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. Close to 2,000 men, women and children in our community, including cancer, transplant and surgery patients, trauma victims, newborn babies, and many others need blood transfusions each day. Since blood lasts only 42 days, area hospitals are in real need. You can change that. One pint of blood is separated into components that can save several lives. Please consider making a donation and giving the gift of life. Walks-ins welcome. Appointments can be made by contacting Susan Czuwak
