Newscasts on September 11, 2001, urged listeners to donate blood to help save the lives of victims. In Gainesville on 9/11 more than 800 people lined up to give blood.  Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Meredith Chipman, spent time at Lifesouth Community Blood Centers in Gainesville to talk about that day and how blood donations have changed over the last ten years.
