November Blood Donation Opportunities

Posted Wednesday, November 2, 2011 --- 11:55 a.m.

Press Release from the Red Cross:

Give Blood to Help Ensure a Stable Holiday Supply

Thanksgiving traditionally marks the beginning of the holiday season. The American Red Cross often sees blood donations decrease during this time of year, while the need for blood remains constant. To help ensure that there is a stable blood supply during the holiday season, the Red Cross depends on generous volunteer donors to give blood.

Family gatherings and other seasonal activities can fill schedules, leaving little time for blood donations. However, patients can’t take a break from needing blood. Give thanks and give life this season by making an appointment to donate blood or platelets today. All blood types are needed to help maintain a sufficient supply for hospital patients.

How to Donate Blood
Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
