Blood drive scheduled Friday

LARNED — The Larned Community Blood Drive is scheduled from noon to 6 p.m. Friday at the Larned Community Center, 1500 Toles.
Call the Red Cross (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org for more information or to make an appointment.
All blood types are needed to ensure the Red Cross maintains an adequate blood supply. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 with completed parental consent form). New height and weight restrictions apply to donors 18 and younger.
You can donate whole blood every eight weeks, giving you the opportunity to help your community up to six times a year. Each blood donation has the potential to save up to three lives.
The American Red Cross relies on the generosity of volunteer blood donors to help supply hospital patients with life saving blood. Blood is a perishable product with a shelf life of only 42 days and platelets just five days, so it must be replenished constantly — there simply is no substitute.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
