Thanks to the Tallyville Fire Company for hosting a comfortable space for everyone to contribute.
Over the past year we’ve experienced a blood crisis. In a severe blood shortage, medical professionals were nervous regarding the blood supply.
According to the Blood Bank of Delmarva, the need for blood donations remains urgent. Type O Rh negative and platelets are critical right now.
If you are healthy and in a position to give blood, please consider doing so.
The process is quick and painless. Many common myths about donating blood are:
You can’t do so if you have recently gotten a piercing or tattoo.
The truth is, if you haven’t received either in the last 3 months you can absolutely donate!
