Red Cross Blood Drive in Loyal Today
Monday, June 9th, 2014 -- 7:06 AM-There are a couple Red Cross Blood Drives happening this week.
There is a blood drive happening today in Loyal at the Loyal American Legion from 12:30pm to 5:30pm. There is another blood drive happening on Wednesday, June 11th at the Greenwood High School from 12:15pm to 5:15pm.
Whether someone is among the 39 percent of the U.S. population with type O positive blood or the 2 percent with B negative, the American Red Cross is looking for eligible donors of all types to give blood to help avert a shortage.
Those with O negative, A negative and B negative are especially urged to donate, as their blood types are often in high demand because they can potentially be transfused to both Rh negative and positive patients. O negative is the universal blood type and can potentially be transfused to any patient.
