Longer blood drive hours needed
Wednesday, August 4, 2010 - 12:35 pm

I read online this morning where blood donations are down this summer. I am a person who tries to give blood at every opportunity as I have a rare blood type and always give double red. The last two blood drives sponsored through C-PH were not at all convenient. My workplace does not honor giving blood as a reason to flex my day. I don’t have enough time at lunch to give and when the drives end at 4 p.m., it is just impossible to get there. I would think that C-PH and its blood donor partner would set up more convenient hours, a Saturday or into the early evening, so people like me who like to give blood could actually give. Thanks!
