Emergency Blood Platelet Donations Needed

Posted on 2/16/2015 2:55:56 PM

Blood donations are always needed, especially during the winter months, but this week’s Central Blood Drive has a special appeal.

An emergency at the facility where the organization stores blood products resulted in the loss of much of their platelet inventory. People who donate platelets on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, in the HUB Ohio Room from noon until 5:00 p.m. will receive a $10 Giant Eagle Gift Card. Regular blood donations are also greatly needed.

The drive is co-sponsored by P.O.I.Z. Modeling Group, AMSA, Theta Phi Alpha, and the Putt/Delaney Staff. Donors who are planning to donate platelets should contact Diane Stipcak at 724-357-2235 for an appointment.
