Blood Drive
When: January 24, 2018 09:00 AM until 01:00 PM Eastern Time Zone
Franklin High School in Franklin.
Event Details:

The American Red Cross is issuing an urgent call for blood and platelet donors to help tackle a winter blood shortage. Severe winter weather has had a tremendous impact on blood donations already this year. While all blood types are urgently needed, there is a more critical need for the following blood and donation types right now:

  • Platelets: The clotting portion of blood primarily given to cancer patients during treatment and always in great demand.
  • Type O negative: The blood type that can be transfused to almost everyone and is what doctors reach for in trauma situations.
  • Type B negative: The blood type that can be transfused to type B Rh-positive and negative patients.
  • Type AB: The plasma type that can be transfused to almost everyone and can be donated through a platelet or plasma donation, where available, or during a regular blood donation.

Donations are needed right now so that patients can continue to receive lifesaving treatments. the next blood drive is Wednesday, January 24 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Franklin High School in Franklin. Donation appointments can be quickly and easily scheduled by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
