Pratt Community College will hold a blood drive on Feb. 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Note, this is a rescheduling from the earlier publicized date of Jan. 29 due to Red Cross mandated blood supply regulation).
A blood donor card or state-issued identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.
According to the Red Cross, the stability of the nation’s blood supply is in the hands of healthy volunteer donors who give generously for others in need. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.
Volunteers are also needed for set up, tear down, and assistance with paperwork and snack distribution during the drive.
Walk-ins are welcome but appointments will be given preference. Appointments to donate can be made at redcrossblood.org or to volunteer by calling Leighanne Dean at 620-450-2113.
