Every two seconds someone in the US needs blood. Blood and platelets can be used for trauma victims – due to accidents and burns – heart surgery patients, organ transplant patients, premature babies, when there are complications during childbirth, and for patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or other diseases, such as sickle cell disease.
Can you help? Please come to Buncombe County Government’s blood drive and donate. Every pint of blood a donor gives can save three lives.
The drive is open to anyone qualified to give and it only takes around an hour.
