Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
So the demand remains great.
Change the World Allen is hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive at FUMC Allen on Friday May 14 from 9:00am-3:00pm.
Appointments are available now for two types of donations: Blood and Power Red.
Blood: The most common type of donation, during which approximately a pint of ‘whole blood’ is given. This type of blood donation usually takes about an hour.
Power Red: A Power Red donation collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have type A Neg, B Neg, or O blood.
