“I am excited to host a blood drive in the community as part of my Eagle project”. “Blood donations are so necessary and always needed in area hospitals,” said Landon Meyer. "To make the event easier for parents we will be offering babysitting and activities for children as well.

Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross. “We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life.”

According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
