Vitalant is conducting a Blood Drive at Las Cruces City Hall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5.
The theme for this drive is "Donate for Mothers" to coincide with Preeclampsia Awareness Month.
Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both the mother and the unborn baby. It affects at least 5-8% of all pregnancies!
Mothers have a vital role in life, and blood donors do too. Schedule a blood donation in honor of mothers, and you can help vulnerable patients -- and moms -- who depend on blood transfusions.
