Become a hero – donate blood. The Roseville Fire Department and the American Red Cross urge you to join them on Monday, December 21 to donate blood. Stop in 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.
