Typical for this time of year, the blood supply levels are dangerously low, with Type O only being available on a â€œtransfuse onlyâ€ basis. Donors are badly needed for the supply levels to accommodate the many needs of patients in northeast Ohio during the summer months.
An added bonus for this drive will be a drawing for a $25 gas card if the goal of productive units is met. All donors will also receive special promotions from Pizza Hut.
In order to schedule an appointment, individuals may go online at www.givelife.org or they can contact the volunteer office at the hospital by calling 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821 and the staff will schedule an appointment.
Each productive unit of blood has the capability of saving the lives of 3 individuals. If it has been a while since an individual has donated or has never donated, this is the perfect time to schedule an appointment and begin the â€œ56 day habitâ€ of donating blood so others can live
