For the second time this year, Breckenridge Grand Vacations employees, along with a few community members, stepped up to support Vitalant by donating 32 units of blood from 28 volunteers in October, including four first-time donors. And four people not only donated whole blood but also donated red cells. On average, every unit of blood can save up to three lives.
Every day in the United States, patients in hospitals, surgical center and emergency treatment facilities need approximately 29,000 units of red blood cells, 5,000 units of platelets and 6,500 units of plasma.
The BGV Blood Drive dates have already been selected for 2022. Mark your calendars now for April 27 and October 4. More detailed information and the link to sign up for an appointment will be sent about a month before each donation day. Hope to see you there.
