Jennifer Phillips: Jenny Phillips. I work with the South Bend Medical Foundation setting up blood drives in our current facility. They're a blood bank for our local community. So, the people that donate, the blood stays within our local community and goes to local hospitals. They are always in need of blood for transfusions or an emergency situation.

If you're looking to get involved and your schedule is so busy you don't have the ability to make a big time commitment, literally by donating blood, by taking 45 minutes out of your time, you may potentially save somebody's life.
