Blood Drives coming up in Delaware County with need critical

— After a summer of declining donations, the American Red Cross needs the public’s help
to prevent a blood shortage. When a donor makes and keeps an appointment to give blood or platelets in
the weeks ahead, they can help ensure trauma patients, those undergoing cancer treatment, and people
with lifelong blood disorders can get the blood they count on.
Right now, the Red Cross especially needs type O negative, type O positive and type B negative blood
donors, as well as platelet donors. Donors of all blood types can schedule an appointment to give by
downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED
CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
The Red Cross is teaming up with Warner Bros. for the theatrical release of Meg 2: The Trench to
celebrate a summer of sharks and help stave off a summer blood and platelet shortage. All who come to
give through Aug. 12 will be automatically entered for a chance to win a three-night New York getaway for
two with a private shark dive adventure at Long Island Aquarium. Those who come to give throughout the
month of August will also get a $10 e-gift card to a movie merchant of their choice. Details are available at
RedCrossBlood.org/Movie.
