(St. Petersburg, FL. August 25, 2015) The need for blood donations never takes a holiday, but the need for blood transfusions in our hospitals is constant. Patients depend on lifesaving blood donations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Give when it matters and save lives by donating blood at any OneBlood Donor Center. September 4th through 7th blood donors will receive a commemorative “Born To Give” T-shirt along with a $10 eGift card, plus a wellness check-up of blood pressure, pulse, temperature and iron count, including a cholesterol screening!
