CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare announces its regular blood drive.

On September 24, 2009 Sartori Memorial Hospital is hosting the blood drive from 2-6 p.m. in the West Dining Room.

To schedule an appointment to donate, call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visit  givebloodgivelife.org.

Donating one pint of blood may help save up to three lives. Every two seconds someone in United States needs blood.

According to the Red Cross, each year, blood donations increase by 2-3 percent, but the demand for blood climbs at a rate of 6-8 percent because of an increase in medical procedures that use blood products.
