SoHum Health Sponsored Blood Drive in Garberville March 26th

logo for northern california community blood bankThe Northern California Community Blood Bank (NCCBB) will be holding a blood drive on March 26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Garberville.

The blood drive, sponsored by SoHum Health at their Sprowl Creek campus located at 286 Sprowl Creek. No appointment is needed to donate blood, walk-ins are welcome.

According to the American Red Cross, every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. urgently requires blood or platelets, highlighting the critical need for blood donation. With approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells, nearly 5,000 units of platelets, and 6,500 units of plasma needed daily in the country, the demand for blood components is constant.

Shockingly, a single car accident victim may necessitate up to 100 units of blood, emphasizing the importance of maintaining an ample blood supply. Since blood and platelets cannot be manufactured and must come from volunteer donors, each donation plays a crucial role in saving lives. With one donation capable of saving multiple lives, including those battling cancer who may require frequent transfusions during treatment, donating blood is an invaluable contribution to society’s health and well-being.

I tried to donate blood once but there were just too many questions:

Whose blood is this?
How did you get it?
Why is it in a bucket?..

Blood tainted with mRNA serum, for the safety of the public, must be labeled.

I was gone today, but Lisa attempted to figure out what occurred but so far has not been able to get a definitive answer.

Thanks we’re just happy they got it restored. Heard the line was down across the river, and needed a helicopter to fix it, but I really don’t know.

Well, SoHum Health is already bleeding you dry…

Seriously, if you need blood, you should donate some, if you are healthy enough…

Our blood supply often depends upon Elders, who often give monthly, because it is the right thing to do…

Most Garberville residents should be required to have a drug screen first…
