What’s in a Blood Donation?

Another birthday. Another walk on the beach or a night under the stars. Another lunch with friends, hugs from a child, or trips to the dog park. A chance to do something generous for a neighbor in need. Laughing till you cry, and a chance to comfort a distressed stranger. Life… That’s what your blood donation means! Please join St. Anthony Community Hospital’s bi-weekly blood drives on Mondays 2:30pm to 8:00pm; Thursdays 10am to 6:00pm; and the third Sunday of the month from 8:30am to 2pm. Located at 20 Grand Street on the grounds of Mount Alverno, Hospital Senior Vice President Jeff Reilly reminds you, “Someone’s tomorrow begins with a blood donor today.”
