When I was growing up my father donated blood on a regular basis and considered it a privlage to serve his community. I started donating blood in college and have organized blood drives to help others donate as well. I also donated with both of my children when they became eligible. It is a great feeling to help people and their family members in their time of need. I encourage anyone who wishes to get involved with their local American Red Cross, they provide our community an invaluable serviice.
