The Community Blood Bank of Northwestern Pennsylvania’s ‘Blood Mobile,’ named ‘Gus’ spends the morning at our station.
A handful of people stopped down to the JET 24 station located on Peach Street to donate their blood.
The process of giving blood is quick and easy. Our own Traci Teudhope donated today. And, for the one pint of blood she donated, she could potentially be saving three lives.
Nicole Hornaman, Communications and Marketing Director, says, “Focus on the amazing thing you are doing. You are helping a local patient…you might be helping them live. You’re giving their family more time with them, you’re giving them more time with their family. It’s an incredible thing to do.”
The Blood Bank has a special promotion running now through August 31st: all donors will be entered to win an all-inclusive trip to Disney World worth $5,000.
You can donate at a mobile drive or at their Erie Donor Center located on Peach Street. For more information, please visit http://fourhearts.org/.
