RED CROSS COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE

THANK YOU

On a sharp cold February Sunday, Springfield and the area community pride was shown again. Our goal was 42 units and we collected 43 units. Once again, I want to say thanks to all who donated and the people who attempted to donate. We can't forget about the local merchants and fire dept. for their part in making the drive a success. With the # of units collected we have helped 129 people in need of blood. Once again thanks to all who were involved.

Blood Donation Opportunities

March 1-15, 2015

BECOME A HERO BY GIVING BLOOD DURING RED CROSS MONTH

 

During Red Cross Month in March, the American Red Cross reminds eligible blood donors that it doesn’t take a cape or superpowers to be a hero. By donating blood, donors can become a hero for patients in need.

Red Cross Month is dedicated to the everyday heroes who support the Red Cross mission by giving blood, volunteering their time, learning lifesaving skills or making a financial contribution.

The need for blood is constant. The Red Cross depends on blood donor heroes in communities across the nation to collect enough blood to meet the needs of patients at approximately 2,600 hospitals nationwide, more than 80 of which are in the local Red Cross Midwest Blood Services Region. Donors with all blood types are needed, particularly those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.

To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
