The national appeal for immediate blood donations continues this week. Blood type O is needed desperately!
Severe winter weather still contributes to low donor-show rates and minimal blood collections. Blood types O-positive and O-negative have been depleted to medical approval levels, or levels where the Red Cross physician approves the distribution of each unit of blood types to ensure that patient needs are effectively met.
Regionally, the Red Cross has slightly more than a one-day supply. Healthy individuals age 17 or older and weighing at least 110 pounds should schedule a donation appointment by calling 274-7342, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also look for your chance to sign up in the Campus Center lobby February 4-6 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please schedule an appointment and help recruit a friend to go with you to donate; we need all the donors we can get.
We want you to be an everyday local hero. Please give blood Tuesday, February 10, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Emerson Suites. Help patients waging their own war on survival.
