LifeSouth Blood Drives
Donating blood is a selfless act by one person to save the lives of others. Only approximately 37 %of the US population is eligible to donate with less than 10% of that group actually donating. Blood Drives occur at JCPC every 8-10 weeks. You can save three lives with your one donation. Last year JCPC saved 180 lives.
