BLOODSOURCE PLASMA DONATION TO SUPPORT HAITI MEDICAL CLINIC 

BloodSource has a new clinic in Granite Bay that takes donations of Source Plasma which is utilized to create lifesaving medicines all over the world. Bridgeway has established a partnership with BloodSource in Granite Bay. If anyone from Bridgeway makes a donation of Source Plasma at the Granite Bay clinic, not only will they be contributing to curing world diseases, but BloodSource will donate $100 to Bridgeway! That money will then be used to support our Haiti church partner's medical clinic.
