Blood Bank Visits Milford

Members of the Milford Community came out Thursday, January 20 to donate to a cause greater than their selves.  The Blood Bank of Delmarva hosted their monthly blood drive at the Carlisle Fire House with the hopes of encouraging people to help save lives by donating blood.

Since 1970, January has been National Blood Donor Month across the United States. The month of January was chosen because of its historically the most challenging month to get individuals to donate blood.

According to the Blood Bank of Delmarva 20,000 local patients will need blood transfusions this year. It takes 350 blood donors a day to meet that need. The Blood Bank of Delmarva urges people to visit the mobile Blood Bank which is  held monthly at the Reformation Lutheran Church, 613 Lakeview Avenue, and at the Carlisle Fire Hall, 615 Northwest Front Street. A calander of the dates can be found at http://www.delmarvablood.org/drive_calendar.html.
