The Duhigg Center was busy Tuesday for a very good reason.
The Red Cross Blood Drive was in town.
Donors kept the technicians busy through the day, with donors ranging from the very young to older folks. The one thing everyone had on common, though, was that they wanted to help others by donating blood.
Due to the way blood is separated, each donation can possibly save up to three lives. And if you consider the number of donors who have given a gallon or more, you can start to realize the huge impact they've have on our community and beyond.
So the next time you're in need of blood - whether it's for an operation, or perish the thought, an accident, think of those who have donated blood.
And if you're thinking of becoming a donor yourself, congratulations! You're about to join an exclusive club of very special people.
There are some very easy qualifications to meet, and they can tell you what those are when you register.
So thank you in advance for being a very special person doing a very special thing for some very special people.
