Saving Lives with the Gift of Blood

We at Self-Help like to say we give blood, sweat and tears to our mission, and sometimes the blood donation is literal.  On Tuesday this week Self-Help Credit Union in Durham worked with the American Red Cross to hold an on-site blood drive, where staff members and some of our local neighbors had an opportunity to participate. Altogether, Self-Helpers and friends gave 25 units of blood! Each unit can save up to three people’s lives, so as many as 75 recipients could benefit.

We appreciate Self-Help staffers Delores Stillson, Pat Walker and Charles Williams, who do a superb job coordinating our blood drives.  To find out how to host your own event or where you can donate, visit the Red Cross website
