Volunteer Blood Donors Needed to Reverse Prolonged Shortage – Vitalant

March Donors Automatically Entered into $10,000 Give-a-way; Groceries for a Year!

Nonprofit Vitalant is urging all eligible blood donors to give in March to help patients amid a prolonged blood shortage, compounded by inclement weather. Cold, snow and other adverse weather conditions across the country canceled blood drives, preventing more than 1,300 donations to go uncollected in February alone.  To make a blood donation appointment, download the Vitalant app, visit vitalant.org or call 877-25-VITAL (877-258-4825) – Tri-city locations detailed below.

Donors of every blood type are critically needed, especially those with type O. The universal blood type, O-negative can be transfused to any patient when there’s no time to match. O-positive is the most in-demand and transfused blood type. Those living with disorders including Hemophilia and von Willebrand disease depend on blood donations for their treatments to alleviate chronic pain and uncontrollable bleeding. Donors of every blood type are critical to helping patients for both ongoing and emergency needs.

Blood donors who donate with Vitalant in March will automatically be entered to win one of 2, $10,000 prepaid gift cards, to be used wherever accepted, enough to buy groceries for a year. In addition, all donors are invited to join Vitalant’s donor recognition program. With each donation, donors can receive points toward thank-you gifts redeemable online.
