You made it happen!
We had a fantastic turnout for our October 5 blood drive! With 51 generous donors and 48 donations total, this means that approximately 144 patients will receive the precious blood they need for their medical care. Thank you from the entire Siouxland Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery team!
When Dr. Miller and Dr. George and the team found out that there was a blood shortage in the country, we rallied to host a blood drive with Community Blood Center to help. We invited the Backyard BBQ food truck for complimentary grub to boost the energy of our donors and added some fun gift bags of swag, but it was you — our generous volunteers — that made this event what it was.
The Siouxland Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery community blood drive is an annual event, and we hope we can count on you to join us again next year. Please spread the word!
Blood is perishable, and there is no substitute for it, so blood donors are needed year-round. Consider donating more than once this year to help increase the blood supply in our community and across the nation. For more information on our annual blood drive, please visit our Facebook page.
