Be a Lifesaver
Thank You for Saving Lives!
Every year, more than 4.5 million lives are saved in the United States with donated blood. In our lifetime, and 8 out of 10 of us will require blood or blood products. Donated blood is used for traumas, surgeries, burns, cancer, and other illnesses. In our region alone, more than 500 blood donors a week are needed to help approximately 1,500 patients.
The team at Siouxland Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery was proud to partner this year with the Sioux Falls Community Blood Bank again for our third annual blood drive. A huge thank you goes out to all of our donors, whose donations will help save nearly 100 lives in our community.
Thank you for your life-saving and priceless gift, and we look forward to hosting more life-changing events in the future.

We also encourage donors to wear a personal mask throughout their donation.
