October blood drives

Written by  Wednesday, 30 October 2013 10:15

  The first American Red Cross blood drive this is today (Wednesday, October 30)  at Georgia Southern University in the Russell Union Ball Room A from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.


  The final blood in October drive is set for Thursday, October 31, at the Statesboro campus of EastGeorgia State College, from 10 a.m. till 3 p.m.


  Although all blood is made of the same basic elements, not all blood is alike.  There are eight different common blood types, which are determined by the presence or absence of certain antigens.


  There are four major blood groups determined by the presence or absence of twoantigens – A and B – on the surface of red blood cells: Group A, Group B, Group AB and Group O.


  There is a third antigen called the Rh factor, which can be either present (+) or absent ( – ). 


  The universal red cell donor has Type O negative blood type.


  The universal plasma donor has Type AB positive blood type.


  All types of blood are needed to help alleviate the chronic shortage in the region. 


  For potential donors who would like to give blood but time is of the essence, you can make an appointment by phone at   1-800-733-2767 (1-800-Red Cross).  You may also make an appointment online at  www.redcrossblood.org / Click on Make a Blood Donation Appointment
