Morrison wants to encourage more people to give back to the community and hospitals. It is just part of being an honest, great citizen to donate blood. One day a love one of theirs or themselves might need blood donated to them if an emergency occurs. Everyone should know that donating blood is always in a professional setting and it is safe and overlooked by doctors as well as nurses says, Morrison.
Scott Sinclair is a recruitment team leader at the Blood Service Center. He told reporters that they are very fortunate to have regular blood donors. Scott Sinclair also says new blood donors are always in need to replace people who are no longer able to donate blood. Some of their regular blood donors that aren’t able to give any longer may be due to a change in medications, relocating or due to an unexpected illness or disease.
