Currently, there is a severe shortage of blood and Wolcott employees will be heading to the bank next week to support through blood and platelet donation.
Blood transfusions are not only essential during traumatic injuries and surgeries but also life saving for cancer and chronic illness patients. Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion and only 38% of the population is eligible to donate. Blood donation takes about 10 minutes and with that pint of blood, up to three lives can be saved.
If you are interested in participating in a local blood donation, please click here to find a location in your area or join us next week at the following locations:
Wednesday, 11/28: City National Plaza: 515 S. Flower St Los Angeles CA 90071
Thursday, 11/29: Veteran's Memorial Complex: 4117 Overland Avenue, Culver City, CA 90232
