12th Annual Bikers for Blood Community Blood Drive


12th Annual “Bikers for Blood” Community Blood Drive

Did you ever think you’d see an angel riding a Harley?  Or how about one who wears a leather jacket?  Well, you’ll see plenty of motorcycle riding, leather wearing angels, and many others, at the twelfth annual POW*MIA “Bikers for Blood” Community Blood Drive, Thursday, December 14, 2017. 

You can become an angel this holiday season and you don’t even need to own a motorcycle or have a pair of wings!  Just join the bikers and many others from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. December 14 at the Mountain View Event Center, 1567 Way to Grace, Pocatello, ID to help give the perfect gift this year, “the gift of life!”

Donating blood is a gift that will not cost you anything except a little of your time.  During this hectic time of year we ask you to take a moment to give a gift that over 60 percent of the population could give, yet only five percent actually do. Be that special angel this year and donate.

The POW*MIA is teaming with the American Red Cross to create awareness in our community of the need for blood.  Every two seconds in the United States someone needs blood.  Every 20 minutes someone in Idaho needs blood. One in two people in their lifetime will need blood. Help us to be able to fulfill this ever increasing need by donating.

The American Red Cross needs your help ensure that no patient need goes unmet this holiday season.  Blood must be available before it is needed to help save the lives of accident victims, cancer patients, premature babies and other people who need this lifesaving give.  A single blood donation can help save more than one person, but there are hundreds of people who need blood every day, even on the holidays.  These people may be your family, friends or neighbors.
