Thank you for helping to save lives this summer!
The team at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is thrilled to announce that our August 22 blood drive was a huge success! Thanks to the generosity and community spirit of our Flint, Saginaw, and Bay City residents, we were able to collect 25 pints of blood, which is equivalent to nearly 75 lives saved!
When the American Red Cross issued an emergency call for blood donations this summer, our oral surgeons, Drs. Frey, Lesneski, and Kittle, partnered with Michigan Blood to help ensure hospitals have enough blood — blood shortages can cause delays in patient care and result in unnecessary deaths, and since blood is perishable, donors are needed year-round.
Every donor received a T-shirt and a branded tumbler as a token of our appreciation, but we want to say it again: thank you to everyone who donated! You are true heroes to us and to every individual whose life depends on volunteers just like you for lifesaving medical care. Our community blood drive is an annual event, so we hope we can count on you to volunteer again next year!
