Crucial Blood Drive: September 18

The American Red Cross will hold a Faculty/Staff Blood Drive on Thursday, September 18 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., in Cafe 58, on the first floor of Irvine Auditorium. There is an urgent need for blood right now; Types O+, O-, A- and B- all have less than a one day supply currently, and B+ and AB+ have barely enough for that same period. If you are eligible to donate, please do so during this crucial time. To sign up for this drive, go to http://givesblood.org/go.php?bdc=104302.

If you are a first-time donor, here is what you need to know: you must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and have a photo ID with you. Eat a good meal before donation (breakfast or lunch, not just an apple or a banana). Be sure to double up on your water intake both the day before and after donation. Try to “iron up” before donation by eating plenty of green, leafy vegetables, raisins, beef, soy, to increase the iron level in your blood. If it is too low, you will be deferred from donating. If you have questions about your eligibility to donate, call the Red Cross at 1-800-GIVELIFE. Please, help save a life!
