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. Donors with all blood types are needed, particularly those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
The Red Cross will be at Mason Columbia at 281 Pritham Avenue in Greenville on Monday, March 9th from 12:30 to 5:30 PM.
Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-Red Cross (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are seventeen years of age (sixteen with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors eighteen years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
