Here’s what we talked about this week.  If you aren’t receiving your THIS FIVE MINUTES each Friday, be sure to sign up!


It’s NATIONAL BLOOD DONOR MONTH. Don’t wait for a disaster. Someone needs blood now! It couldn’t be more important:

• About 36,000 units of red blood cells and 7,000 units of platelets are needed every single day in the U.S.
• A single car accident victim may need up to 100 pints of blood to survive.
• 38% of our population is eligible to donate, but less than 10% actually do.
• A single donation from a single person can help more than one person.

Contact the American Red Cross or your local blood bank for more information.
