Bridgeland residents and visitors gave the ultimate gift to help save as many as 54 lives during a recent blood drive at the community.
The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center’s blood mobile parked at Bridgeland’s Welcome Center, 16919 North Bridgeland Lake Parkway, Sunday, June 28, to take donations. Staffers collected 16 units of whole blood and two units of double red cells.
“It was a successful afternoon at Bridgeland,” said the Blood Center’s Gary Moore. “Thanks to the efforts of Bridgeland and the contributions of the donors, as many as 54 lives will be saved.”
The blood mobile will return to the community Sept. 26 during planned Nature Fest activities.
Blood donations are truly life-sustaining gifts. According to the center, blood donations can help a variety of individuals — trauma victims, surgery patients, premature babies, people with anemia, cancer patients and others. Each unit of whole blood can be separated into plasma, platelets and red blood cells, helping save three lives.
