For medical emergencies, ongoing treatments, and surgeries alike, blood is the staple upon which a patient’s life depends. Yet there is no substitute for human blood. Our only hope is the blood received through volunteer dona- tions from people like you. It is estimated that each year, more than four million people have a second chance at life because of blood transfusions made possible by volunteer blood donors.
Noddle Companies wants to connect area businesses and community members with the opportunity to save lives. In 2017, Aksarben Village will work with Nebraska Community Blood Bank to host four blood drives on Mercy Road next to Stinson Park. The first blood drive will take place Friday, February 17 from 10 AM to 2 PM. All presenting donors will be entered to win tickets to the Red-White Spring Football Game and will receive a Nebraska Community Blood Bank t-shirt.
2017 Nebraska Community Blood Bank blood drives at Aksarben Village are:
Friday, February 17
Friday, May 19
