Wackford Community Blood Drive
The Elk Grove community can save lives during Blood Donor Day at the Wackford Community Center (9014 Bruceville Rd., Elk Grove) on Friday, June 9 from 8:00am – 7:00pm.

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. Blood donations can help a patient in need such as John Phillips, a wrestler who recently graduated from Elk Grove High School. An autoimmune disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP landed Phillips in the hospital on his 17th birthday. John’s life was turned around thanks to blood donors who helped him get well. Plasma-based medicine was the key to Phillips’ recovery.

In addition to blood donation opportunities, potential marrow donors ages 18-44 can register for Be The Match® national marrow registry through BloodSource. For more information, please visit bloodsource.org or call Elizabeth Rolli at (916) 453-3045.
