Deusinger speaks to Kiwanis Club about Blood Roundup

Posted

OKEECHOBEE — Raye Deusinger from the Okeechobee Blood Roundup spoke to the Kiwanis Club on Sept. 15 to promote the 2022 Okeechobee Blood Roundup, set for Nov. 19 and 20. This is the 17th year the Round Up has happened in Okeechobee and Deusinger said it takes about four months of planning and 30 to 40 volunteers to make happen.

Deusinger said aside from the humanitarian reasons, donating blood is healthy. On average a man decreases their risk of heart attack by donating blood three times a year. Deusinger estimates that Okeechobee has donated nearly 6,000 units of blood though Blood Roundup.
