The drive will be held from noon until 5:45 p.m. in conference room 1-A, located off of the CafÃ© on the first floor of the hospital.
â€œThe northeast Ohio blood supply remains at a very low status. We are asking individuals who have never donated to make that commitment this month. Our community is in the low level area of northeast Ohio. If there ever was a time each individual can â€œmake a differenceâ€, it is through our blood driveâ€, states Becky Wilson, Lab Manager at ACH.
Appointments for the drive can be made online at www.givelife.org, or potential donors can call the volunteer office at ACH, 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821, and the staff will make an appointment for the donor.
Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh no less than 110 pounds and have a picture ID with them at the time of the drive. Questions or further information can be obtained by calling the volunteer office.
