There is currently a critical blood shortage, and every drop counts at Drops of Life XI! Started by coordinator Joe Burmeister to honor the fallen heroes of 9/11, this blood drive is now a community tradition.

Blood donors are heroes too. One blood donation can save up to three lives. All blood types are currently needed to help accident victims, new mothers experiencing childbirth complications, and people with cancer and chronic blood disorders.

When hospitals are faced with emergency situations, there’s no time to wait. It’s the blood already on the shelves that saves lives.

To me, donating blood is a spiritual experience. You are giving something that was part of you to help a complete stranger live.
