World Blood Donor Day is June 14 and is a day to honor all the people who selflessly give blood to save lives in their communities. It is also a day to remember how important blood donation is to all the patients in community hospitals who count on blood donors to supply life-saving products.
Summer is an especially difficult time for blood banks due to increased usage and less donations. Many people are traveling and do not come as often during the summer as they would at other times of the year. Schools are also out during the summer and unable to host drives. That is why Blood Assurance asks that anyone who is in town and able to give, please do so.
To be eligible to donate blood, you must be at least 18 years old (16 and 17 years old with parental consent), weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health. Donors are asked to drink plenty of fluids — avoiding caffeine — and eat a meal that is rich in iron prior to donating. To schedule an appointment at a donor center or blood drive near you, please visit www.bloodassurance.org, call 800-962-0628 or text ‘BAGIVE ‘ to 444999.
