June Red Cross blood drives
Although there’s a constant need for all blood types, the Red Cross needs type O donors (especially O negative donors) immediately. Type O negative blood can be safely transfused to patients of all blood types. In trauma situations where there’s not time to crossmatch blood, type O negative is used.
All donors who give blood now through June 30 can enter a drawing to win a $750 Gas Card.- Wednesday, 2-6:30 p.m., Spencer Community Blood Drive, Spencer Moose Lodge, 1301 N. Elizabeth Ave., Spencer. Call the Red Cross office at 704-633-3854 for an appointment.
