  • Thank you to MaryAnne, she just created a Red Cross Blood Donor Team called “Santa Cruz Sunrise Rotary Club”. I know that many of our Club members regularly donate blood and I thought it would be fun to have us all in a Team to track our impact. Once a person joins the Team their donations are counted in the totals.   Join my team and help American Red Cross save even more lives. Link   Did you know that each blood donation can save up to three lives?
