State Senator Sharon Runner and the City of Santa Clarita are teaming up to ask members of the public to donate blood to the American Red Cross.
“Giving blood is giving someone a lifeline,” said Sen. Runner. “Every minute, someone needs blood. Please take time out of your busy schedule to give the gift of life.”
According to the American Red Cross, blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation. Only three out of every 100 people in America donate blood.
From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The American Red Cross blood donor embodies this principle. Please join us in our mission to maintain a safe and stable blood supply by making your appointment to donate blood today.
