Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Photo ID is required. To learn more about the importance of blood donation and how donors can target the power of their blood type visit oneblood.org.
The summer months are a time of increased need for blood donations. School is out, families are traveling and the heat is on, all of which impact our local blood supply. Did you know that if those who donate blood or platelets once or twice a year donated just one additional time, we could prevent our community from facing critical blood shortages?
Therefore, to boost the blood supply OneBlood is sponsoring the ‘2 From You’ Summer 2015 campaign. Every time a donor gives blood or platelets twice between May 1 and August 31, 2015, they will receive an entry to win one of twenty AMAZING giveaways! Prizes include Televisions, iPads and Apple Watches! For official rules visit oneblood.org/2FromYou
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. Blood that is donated today will likely be transfused into a patient within two to three days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant.
