Mundelein Fire Department - Strong Blood Donations Advocate

The need for blood affects us all. Nine out of every 10 people will need a blood transfusion at some point in their life. A constant supply of blood is necessary for the life-saving treatments needed by many patients throughout Lake County and beyond. For those who are able, donating blood is a simple, meaningful way to give back to those in need. On a quarterly basis, the MFD hosts a community blood drive in partnership with Life Source. Did You Know? • Approximately 38 percent of the national population is eligible to donate blood • Less than 10 percent of the national population donates blood • Each year, 4.5 million Americans would die without lifesaving blood transfusions • Every two seconds, someone needs blood Please consider participating in the next MFD blood drive.
