It takes all blood types to help save lives


Fri, Jul 5th, 2013
Posted in Harmony Health & Wellness

ST. PAUL - Whether someone is among the 39 percent of the U.S. population with type O positive blood or the two percent with B negative, the American Red Cross is looking for eligible donors of all types to give blood this summer to help avert a shortage.

Those with O negative, A negative and B negative are especially urged to donate, as their blood types are often in high demand because they can potentially be transfused to both Rh negative and positive patients. O negative is the universal blood type and can potentially be transfused to any patient.

Vacations, activities and holidays contribute to a decrease in donations during the summer, but patients don’t get a break from needing blood. Visit the Summer of Stories campaign website, redcrossblood.org/summer, to make an appointment to donate, then share why you give blood and watch videos about people whose lives have been touched by donors.

Upcoming blood

donation opportunities:

Fillmore County

• July 16 from 1-7pm at Community Center, 225 Third Ave. SW in Harmony, Minn.

• July 18 from 2-7pm at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 405 Bench St. SW in Chatfield, Minn.

• July 24 from 1-7 pm at Community Hall, 202 Parkway in Lanesboro, Minn.

How to donate blood:

Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
