Fifty years after making his very first blood donation, Bonfils Blood Center honored Broomfield’s Charlie Amaral for making 50 gallons worth of donations.
Bonfils Blood Center is offering a series of special thank you gifts to blood donors now through January to help prevent a critical shortage during the holiday season, a typically slow time for donations. Blood donations can drop as much as 20 percent during the holidays and winter months, but patients need blood every two seconds, every day of the year.
Blood donors are urged to consider donating platelets as Bonfils and blood centers all across the country face a shortage.
Show your support for active duty and veteran members of the Armed Forces by teaming up with Bonfils and Orangetheory Fitness (OTF) by donating blood in honor of our country's veterans.
