More than 145 lives can be saved, thanks to the people who donated blood at the Mexico Elks Lodge on Monday.
The American Red Cross issued an emergency appeal for blood after donations were down by 10 percent nationwide. 49 units of blood were collected in Mexico; each one can help save three lives.
Even though donations have rebounded, the emergency call is still out.
If you were unable to donate on Monday, you can find more opportunities at Red Cross blood drives by visiting redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.
