• October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Donors are needed to help ensure blood and platelets are on the shelves for cancer patients and others who rely on transfusions for care.
• A diverse blood supply is important! We are recruiting donors of all ethnicities to give at our drive. Did you know a patient is more likely to find a compatible blood match from a donor of the same race or a similar ethnic group?
• An hour of your time could save up to three lives. Those who donate between October 1-31, 2022 will receive a $5 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice. Click here to Give Blood Get a Gift Card and enter BCERT to be brought to the blood drive in honor of Pete Pelkey.
