Reasons to participate in this drive:

  • Critical Need: O Negative, B Negative and Platelet Donors due to a current blood and platelet shortage.
  • January is National Blood Donor Month, the perfect time to resolve to give more life by being a blood donor.
  • Winter weather and illness can make it difficult for the American Red Cross to maintain a sufficient blood supply at this time of year. Healthy, eligible donors are urged to give now.
  • The Red Cross must collect nearly 14,000 blood donations every day for patients in need.
  • Type O negative is the universal blood type and what emergency personnel reach for in trauma situations when there isn’t time to determine a patient’s blood type. This blood type is also often used for babies who need transfusions.
  • Type O positive is the most common blood type and can be transfused to Rh-positive patients of any blood type. This blood type is also often used for babies who need transfusions.
  • Types A negative and B negative can be transfused to Rh-positive or negative patients.d
