The blood drive is a way of giving staff, colleagues, neighbors, and age-eligible students an opportunity to help save lives. Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. Type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and it’s often used to treat trauma patients.
As part of the drive the Red Cross will give $10 per unit of donated blood toward the purchase of guitars for the middle school music program.
For more information, or to make an appointment to donate, call the school office at 620-663-2174 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code CougarsCCS.
