The Community Blood Center is hosting a blood drive November 24, 2010

The Community Blood Center is hosting a blood drive November 24, 2010, from 11 am - 2:30 pm at Four Seasons Sunrooms in Lee’s Summit, located at 821 SW Oldham Parkway.

“Up to three lives can be saved from just one donation” said Carl Clayton, managing partner of Four Seasons Sunrooms.  “We hope the community will join us in giving the gift of life this Thanksgiving season.  With increased travel during the holidays, traumatic injuries from car accidents are on the rise, and the need for blood is even greater.”

Currently only three out of every 100 people in America donate blood. The most pressing needs for donations include children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery.  
They need blood and platelets from donors of all types, especially type O.  Right now,  the supply of both type O+ and type O- blood is at a dangerously low supply (other blood types are scarce as well). In addition, every unit of blood collected goes directly to an area hospital to assist local citizens.  

Blood donors must be 17 or older (16 with parental consent), weigh a minimum of 110 pounds (122 pounds for age 16), be in general good health without cold or flu symptoms and show a valid photo ID prior to the donation. Donors that have (partial list) a history of hepatitis (after age 11); HIV; chronic kidney disease, coronary heart disease; internal cancer requiring surgery; or uncontrolled diabetes are permanently deferred.

To donate and give the gift of life this holiday season, contact Tammy Barker at (816) 524-2770 or register online at www.savelifenow.org, using sponsor code fourseasons.  All registered donors will receive a $500 credit towards replacement windows or sunroom products, as a thank you for their generosity.
