Whether you’re a high school or college student going back to class or a parent who finally has some free hours now that the kids are back in school, Bonfils Blood Center needs your help.
Please consider sparing an hour this weekend to donate blood to help replenish the supply after a Denver-area hospital treating a surgery patient called for 167 units of blood in 90 minutes.
A big thank you to everyone who took part in Bonfils Blood Center’s Chip in for Life golf benefit August 10. The event raised nearly $75,000 to support Bonfils’ lifesaving operations, one of the most successful in the benefit’s 12-year history.
All eligible blood donors are urged to consider donating blood to help replenish the supply after a patient required massive transfusion support at a Denver area hospital overnight Thursday into Friday.
Blood donors give an average of 38 units of blood at each Bonfils blood drive Rose Medical Center hosts. It took nearly that much blood to save Tara Burns’ life when she was rushed into surgery at Rose in 2011.
