Gurnee Police Department Blood Drive: Thursday, May 12, 2022
Why Donate Blood?
Blood donation helps supply blood products to treat patients with severe injuries and serious health conditions. A single donation can help save up to 3 lives. According to LifeSource, every two seconds, an American is in need of blood. Without the blood provided by generous donors, 4.5 million Americans would die each year. In spite of this need, only 3% of eligible adults in the Chicagoland area will donate blood this year.
