Donors Needed to Save Lives This Summer

The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are set to begin soon, but so too is a critical time of the year for the area's blood supply. The summer months often bring a decline in the number of blood donors due to busy schedules and travel. However, the need does not change and often increases. The Nebraska Community Blood Bank needs all donors on deck for the Monday, June 20, 2011 blood drive at the Jefferson Community Health Center. Now more than ever, patients across southeast Nebraska will be counting on people who are willing to give the gift of life.
