TBE Blood Drive

Thanks to everyone who donated blood at our second mobile blood drive. If you passed by Temple on Tuesday, August 25 from 3-7 p.m., you should have seen a large PINK mobile unit from the blood bank. Ten of our members and one member from the Rockford community donated a total of 11 pints of blood! Of the 11 donors, 2 were brand new donors! With these 11 pints, we can save 33 lives! Truly Tikkun Olam. Thanks also to Karen Zussman and Rob Levy for their support on that day.

Please keep in mind how important blood donation is. If you were unable to donate at our drive, perhaps you can be a blood donor at another time. For more infor-mation or to schedule a time to donate, you can call: 815-965-8751 or go online-www.rrvbc.org.
