Here at the WKVI, we’re doing our part to prevent a summer blood donation shortage by hosting a blood drive on Monday, August 3. You can potentially save three lives with just one blood donation if you come down to 400 W. Culver Rd to participate. Not only will you walk away with a feeling of accomplishment after providing assistance but you will also receive a free American Red Cross baseball cap.
On Monday from 2 until 6 pm the Red Cross will have their blood drive bus in the WKVI parking lot. In order to be eligible to donate you must be feeling well and in good health, weigh at least 110 lbs and you must be at least 17-years-old or 16-years-old with guardian consent. For more information about restrictions, check out the alphabetical list of eligibility requirements provided by ARC.
The goal of this drive is to obtain 19 units of blood. In order to do so, we need to have at least 30 people schedule donations. Walk-ins will be welcome but you can also schedule an appointment for a specific time that works best for you. Follow the provided link to choose your own donation time. You can also call 1-800-733-2767 to make your appointment. Every 2 seconds, someone out there is in need of blood transfusion, you can do your part to assist three of those people with just one donation.
