Blood drive next Thursday at St. Luke’s

St. Luke’s Hospital will host a Community Blood Drive on Thursday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in a blood mobile parked on the MRI pad near the back of the new orthopedic wing.  As a thank you to all donors, The Blood Connection is giving a free T-shirt, along with a free $10 Walmart gift card, and 500 TBC Rewards Points.

 

The Blood Connection is always in need of O negative blood types, the universal donor. The need for blood is constant and ongoing. Each time you donate blood you can save the lives of three people. The Blood Connection partners with St. Luke’s Hospital being the sole provider of all blood and blood products.

 

For more information, or to schedule an appointment, contact The Blood Connection at 828-233-5302 or visit www.thebloodconnection.org .
