Become a hero – donate blood. The Roseville Fire Department and the American Red Cross urge you to join them on Monday, December 21. Stop by the Fire Station, 2701 Lexington Ave. between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or email Emily.Nelson@cityofroseville.com to schedule a donation time. Appointments are preferred but space will be available if you want to drop in.
According to the American Red Cross, every three seconds someone needs a blood transfusion, and although 60% of the population is eligible to donate blood, fewer than five percent do.
The Fire Department has set a goal of 30 units of blood donated on December 21. For information on donating blood, visit www.redcross.org/donate/give. Thank you for giving.
