Afraid of needles? You are not alone. Many people share that fear but find that they can still give blood. What most say is that the slight initial pinch pales in comparison to the feeling of accomplishment they get at the end of a successful donation! Focus on the lives you may be helping to save by donating blood. By giving a single pint of blood you may help save as many as three lives. You will feel just a slight pinch and it’s over in seconds. The difference you can make may last a lifetime. So come on out to the library or make an appointment. It’s that easy to save a life!
To register for an appointment call the Graubner Library (586)752-0603 opt. 4 or go to http://www.redcrossblood.org/home
