American Red Cross blood drive planned for Feb. 5 in Ogdensburg
Friday, February 1, 2013 - 5:42 pm

OGDENSBURG -- Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center will sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the hospital auditorium.

Refreshments will be served.

The American Red Cross has difficulty keeping enough blood in their inventory to properly supply all medical facilities.

Double red cell donation allows a donor to safely give twice as much blood in one visit. If you have Type O or Type B blood, donate three or less times a year, and you meet the eligibility criteria, you may opt for double red cell donation at the drive.

Every two seconds someone in America needs blood, but less than five percent of the eligible population donates.

Call 713-5040 for an appointment.
