|The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to make a point to give blood before the busy holiday season arrives.
The Red Cross will be at the American Legion, located at 108 Windemere Lane in Unity on Monday, November 3rd from 10 AM to 3 PM.
Donors are needed in the weeks leading up to the winter holidays to help prevent these seasonal declines. Donors of all blood types, and especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative, are needed to help maintain a stable blood supply.
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, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally 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.
Blood donation appointments can be made through the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to learn more about the donation process and to make an appointment.
