The Community Blood Supply is in a huge deficit. Fewer and fewer people are donating. Unfortunately as some members of our older generation have become ineligible to donate, many millennials are not stepping up to donate and take their place.
Vitalant, formerly United Blood Services, is the sole supplier of the patient blood need for 100% of Northern AZ and Maricopa County and 96% of hospitals statewide.
Children like 7-year-old Flagstaff resident Avari, relies on the kindness of strangers to keep her alive! She needs a blood transfusion every month because of a rare blood disorder, Diamond Blackfan Anemia. Because her body cannot produce its own red blood cells, Avari will soon have her 80th blood transfusion.
The Lumberyard Brewing Co. and the Beaver Street Brewery would like to thank you for giving blood with a voucher for a dessert of your choice at either of their restaurants.
