46% of patients who receive  platelets NEED blood! In fact, every 2 seconds, someone in the United States NEEDS blood! The North Country's coming to the rescue...a Community Blood Drive has been scheduled for this afternoon (Tuesday) up in Sunburst, at the Methodist Church. Keep in mind on average, only 3% of our population donates blood on a yearly basis. If you can, please donate the Gift of Life this afternoon between 12:30, & 5, & help keep someone alive.
