We're having a blood drive at the chapter headquarters on Tuesday afternoon the 14th!
The recent storms have forced the cancellation of hundreds of blood drives throughout the country. The Red Cross network allows us to ship blood to the spots where there is short supply, so donating here in Southern Nevada will certainly help the national blood supply.
DID YOU KNOW?
Platelets, a key clotting component of blood often needed by cancer patients, must be transfused within five days of donation, so donations are constantly needed. Red blood cells, the oxygen carrying component of blood, are the most widely transfused blood product and must be transfused within 42 days.
So we always need blood donors - always. You can help.
To schedule an appointment, go to www.redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code: ARC
All presenting donors will get an American Red Cross key chain and thermos.
Invite your friends!
