Red Cross Blood Drive
February 3 @ 11:30 AM - 4:30 PM
The Red Cross needs your help!
We are currently in a severe blood shortage and we need to collect as much as possible to ensure a safe blood supply for the hospitals. Donations have been down due to seasonal illness, storms and the holidays.
Additionally because of the shortage, we are asking you to encourage folks to sign up for a POWER RED donation. You have 2 machines at your drive, so there is one of these appointments each hour. Normally we only collect this from O+, O-, A- and B-, but because of the shortage we are also collecting from A+ and B+….which mean almost EVERYONE who meets the physical requirements can do this.
For POWER RED donation only:
Males must be a minimum of 5’1” and 130 lbs.
Females must be a minimum of 5’3” and 150 lbs. (this is new height requirement)
Schedule to donate at www.RedCrossBlood.org (use sponsor code: Beacon).
