WORTHINGTON - Generous patrons can donate their blood Thursday to boost the supply for Sanford Worthington.
The All American Blood Drive is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Ground Round, 1290 Ryan’s Road. Ken Versteeg, Community Blood Bank’s executive director, is hoping for a strong support of the event.
“We are experiencing an extremely high need for blood types O+, O- and A+ at this time,” Versteeg said. “It is crucial that the blood supply is at an adequate level leading up to the July 4 holiday for use in treating patients in need throughout the holiday weekend.”
Individuals must be 17 years of age (or 16 with a signed parental consent form), to donate, weigh 110 pounds or more, and be in good general health the day of the blood drive. A form of identification will also be required.
All who donate will receive a food voucher compliments of Ground Round and a commemorative All-American Blood Donor T-Shirt.
“Please consider donating blood,” Versteeg said. “Your donation will help save patients’ lives at Sanford Worthington, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve Worthington-area patients.”
The event is being hosted by Sanford Worthington, the Daily Globe, Radio Works and Ground Round Worthington. Walk-ins are welcome.
