BARTLETT, IL: BAPS Charities at Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett, a northwest Chicago suburb, organized a Blood Donation Drive on Sunday, March 27.

The blood drive was in collaboration with Lifesource and other blood banks nationwide. Often commended as the “gift of life,” blood donation is truly a way that healthy individuals can give back to their communities. Donors gave 186 units of blood.

Seventeen-year-old Rhiday Pandya drove over 35 miles from downtown Chicago to donate blood for the first time. “My parents have been donating blood with BAPS Charities for a long time,” said Pandya. “Now that I am 17, it’s my turn to help continue this service.”

“The fate between life and death of millions in the US depends upon blood availability, and if BAPS Charities can inspire one more individual to donate blood then these drives can be considered an incredible success,” said event coordinator Dr Sanjay Patel on behalf of BAPS Charities.

In 2010, BAPS Charities Blood Drives were organized at 22 centers throughout North America collecting 823 pints of blood, which will help save up to 2469 lives.
