May 28, 2008

On Thursday, June 12, the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />AllianceCommunityHospital will sponsor its monthly American Red Cross blood drive.  With an increase in the number of donors who visit the site, the hours for this drive have been extended. They will run from 11 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. in the hospital's Cafeteria Conference Room 1-A on the first floor of the hospital.

“Each month our donor numbers continue to grow.  We realize that time is an important commodity to our donors, so we have extended the drive time by an hour in the morning.  We also encourage all of our donors to schedule an appointment, as this is the most important mechanism we can utilize to keep the donor flow moving smoothly and quickly,†explains Marcy Todd, ACH Volunteer Coordinator and blood drive committee member.

 

Donors can schedule their own appointment by going online at www.givelife.org where they can establish their own profile.  Donors can also call the volunteer office at the hospital, 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821, and the staff will schedule an appointment for the donor.

 

“Typically, June begins the season of low numbers for blood drives throughout the country.  Vacations and summer activities influence our donor numbers in a negative manner.  This can drastically affect the amount of blood and blood products we have available for the needs of northeast Ohio, as well as the country.  That is why it is so important that our donors make a conscientious effort to schedule an appointment,†Todd said.

 

Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh no less than 110 pounds and be able to provide a photo ID at the time of registration.

 

“As a way of encouraging individuals who have never donated before, we will be honoring our first-time donors during our June drive.  Each first-time donor will receive a special gift from the hospital.  The prize drawing includes a gift card from Thorne's IGA and pizza coupons from Pisanello's Pizza. All donors who participate from June 1 through Sept. 1 will automatically be entered in a drawing to win free gas for a year,†Todd said. 

 

For more information on the blood drive, or to schedule an appointment, please call the Volunteer Department at the hospital.
