Red Cross Blood Donation Opportunities

October 5, 2017 12:01 am0 commentsViews: 1

PHILADELPHIA — The American Red Cross urges eligible donors of all races and ethnicities to give blood to help ensure a diverse blood supply for patients in need.

Some blood types are unique to certain racial and ethnic groups, so a diverse blood supply is important to meeting the medical needs of an increasingly diverse patient population.

Donors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as all blood types, are needed to help

patients fight sickle cell disease, alpha thalassemia and other illnesses. Make an appointment to give blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

To help reduce wait times, donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at redcrossblood.org/RapidPass.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities Oct. 1-15 in the area:

Clarksboro

Oct. 11: 2 – 7 p.m., Evangelical United Methodist Church, 14 W. Cohawkin Road.
