Blood drive today

Written by  Thursday, 17 July 2014 09:24

  The Bulloch County chapter of the American Red Cross is sponsoring a blood drive Today at the East Georgia Regional Medical Center in the Doctor’s Office Building in the Mims Monroe Blood Services Center, Suite 307 on the third floor.  Hours will be from 12:30 till 5:30 p.m.  The Red Cross urges all eligible donors to attend today’s drive or one in the future. 

 

  During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give.  Even so, the need is constant.

 

  By donating blood or platelets through the Red Cross, donors may be helping patients in their community or patients across the nation.

 

  Red blood cells have a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so they must constantly be replenished.

 

  All types of blood are needed but there is a special need for O-Negative, O-Positive, A- Negative and B-Negative.

 

  To make an appointment by phone, call: 1-800-733-2767 (1-800-Red Cross) To make an appointment online, go to www.redcrossblood.org / Click on Make a Blood Donation Appointment
