A blood drive is coming to the Quincy Mall Community Room on October 14, 2013.

The need is constant. The gratification is instant. That is the motto of the American Red Cross and it rings true for so many people. Donating blood gives you a feeling of satisfaction knowing you have helped some one in need.

Red blood cells are the most frequently used blood component. You can make twice the difference by donating two units of red cells during a single red cell donation. Whether someone has a personal story or just a general desire to help a patient in need, any reason to give blood is a good reason.

Join our Y101 Radio blood drive on October 14, from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Quincy Mall Community Room at 33rd and Broadway. For an appointment call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org.
