Herkimer College to host American Red Cross blood drive
Thursday, February 16, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Alumni Hall, located in the Robert McLaughlin College Center.
The American Red Cross is asking donors to consider a Power Red Cell donation for blood types O Negative, O Positive, A Negative, or B Negative, but all blood types are essential. Power Red Cell donation resembles a regular blood donation, except a special machine allows you to donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets safely back to you. As of October 2022, the new minimum height requirement for females to be eligible for a Power Red donation has changed from 5’5 to 5’3.
All donors will receive a complimentary $10 Amazon gift card by email courtesy of Amazon. In addition, all donors will automatically be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Clearwater Beach, Florida. For more information visit: rcblood.org/heart
To schedule an appointment, email email@example.com or visit redcrossblood.org. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome. Donors are also encouraged to sign up for RapidPass to complete the pre-screening process from home. Sign-up can be found at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass.
