Blood drive June 14 at St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital
St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital will host a community blood drive for the American Red Cross on Thursday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the hospital, located at 5401 Lake Oconee Parkway, Greensboro.
All eligible donors are urged to donate at the Red Cross bloodmobile, which will be set up at the hospital. Donated blood and blood products are essential to saving lives after traumatic accidents and in many other situations. According to the American Red Cross, a pint of donated blood can save up to three lives.
Most healthy people age 17 and over who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate. Please be sure to drink plenty of caffeine-free beverages and eat a good meal prior to donating, and bring a photo ID with you when you come to donate.
Walk-ins are welcome, but scheduling an appointment can help reduce your wait time. To make an appointment, please call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code stmarysgoodsam.
