NOBLE has an opportunity available for you. The opportunity to Give Blood and Save a Life! Every two seconds someone in America needs blood and the American Red Cross needs people like us to help maintain a strong supply of blood across the county. Please know the need for blood is constant and the gratification is instant. Not everyone has been in the position of waiting outside of an operating room while a loved one is in surgery or worse yet having been the person on the operating table, but if you have been in either of these positions you know the profound importance of hospitals maintaining an ample blood supply. During these times there is little news worse than the hospital not having the blood supply needed for a
life saving procedure. You don't even have to know someone personally to feel their angst and despair. Think back to the horrors of hurricane Katrina and hurricane Sandy not to mention the unmentionable human induced acts at the World Trade Center, Columbine and Sandy Hook, just to name a few. In all of these instances the need for blood was tremendous and it was instantaneous. There is little opportunity or time to wait for supplies of blood if the need comes without warning. These are some of the reasons NOBLE is offering you this opportunity. The Opportunity to Give Blood and
Save a Life! Come join us as we take action. To be eligible you must be at least 17 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health.
The NOBLE sponsored blood drive will be held on 13 August 2013, 7am - 3pm in the multipurpose room of Public Safety Headquarters (3510 S. Michigan Avenue). We need you and look forward to seeing you there. The night before donating blood please be sure to get a good night's sleep, drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids, eat a little something before donating and bring a government issued ID.
Be proactive and HELP US SAVE LIVES, through this little act of kindness!
