Give Life, Give Blood in Hendersonville NC

June 19, 2009

Donate blood and platelets for the American Red Cross in Hendersonville NC on June 25th.The Henderson County chapter of the American Red Cross is holding its annual blood drive at Grace Lutheran Church in Hendersonville on June 25th all day long (7am-6pm).  All donors will receive a free Operation Blood Drive T-shirt and will be eligible to win a cruise for two in a special drawing.  The summer is an especially hard time for blood banks because many people are out of town on vacation.  Donors become scarce.  To put the importance of this event in perspective, the American Red Cross needs to have 1600 people donate blood as well as platelets every weekday to supply hospitals in the Carolina region alone.  You can give blood every 56 days and platelets every two weeks as long as you are in good health, weigh 110 lbs or more and are at least 17 years old (16 with a parent’s permission).  To schedule your appointment to donate blood or platelets, please call 693-5605 or visit http://www.membersforlife.org/cbsr/ and use code #6304 when logging in.  While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to make an appointment for less waiting time.  Make sure to give life by giving blood on June 25th (or anytime) in Hendersonville.
