 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Memorial Blood Centers is Calling All Life-Savers

March 23, 2016 (Duluth, MN) – Memorial Blood Centers invites all eligible blood donors to roll up their sleeve and give blood. Every 2 seconds someone needs blood – from heart transplant and cancer patients to accident victims. The need for blood is constant, but the supply is not. Only volunteer blood donors can make a life-saving difference to someone in need.

Step up to give blood at a blood drive in your neighborhood and help save lives. Donating blood is convenient and safe when you are healthy, well and:

While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. To register for a blood drive, go online to MBC.ORG or contact the sponsoring organization directly.
