Blood donors / Volunteers give the gift of life

Every two seconds, someone in America needs a blood transfusion -- cancer patients, accident victims, premature infants and people with chronic diseases, to name a few. Regular donations of blood ensure that all needs are met, all of the time. Giving blood doesn't take much time, and each donation has the power to save as many as three lives. Call 1-800-GIVELIFE (1-800-448-3543) or log on to and make an appointment to donate blood. These Western New Yorkers have reached milestones in blood donations.
