Giving blood is beneficial for those who give and those who receive. The person receiving the blood gets a new chance at life or maybe a booster toward better living. Those who give can feel the power of helping those who need. Other benefits for the donor include self-awareness of pulse, blood pressure, cholesterol, and hemoglobin level as well as bringing own high levels of iron. When a person donates blood they are helping the research toward healthy living and a healthy community. Blood Drives are held in partnership with the Community Blood Bank.
