When you donate whole blood with the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas, your blood stays here, helping local patients. Your blood is split into three products - red cells, plasma and platelets. This means your blood can be used to help three different patients in the local hospitals! The whole process takes an hour or less - and in the end, you walk away saving up to three lives. Sign up for an appointment at OSLE in Founders Hall or e-mail Kristen Poteat at firstname.lastname@example.org!
