Give the gift of life

Don’t forget the blood drive today from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Auditorium and Classroom of Maria Parham Medical Center.

Please call Lee Anne Peoples at 436-1116 to make your appointment.

There are plenty of appointment times available, as signups have been slow!

Please consider giving blood, the gift of life!

We have received an email from the Red Cross indicating that the O-Negative blood type is at EMERGENCY levels currently in our area. People with this blood type are especially encouraged to give. However, if you have a blood type other than O-Negative, please DO NOT let that discourage you from giving blood on this day.

Each donor, regardless of blood type, is VERY important in maintaining the blood levels on reserve in our area.

Criteria for blood donation are that an individual weighs at least 110 pounds, is at least 17 years old and is in good general health.
