American Red Cross officials are pleased with the results of last month’s WKVI blood drive. The station hosted a bloodmobile in the parking lot of the studio at 400 West Culver Road on Monday, Aug. 3. A total of 19 donors registered, one was deferred, and 18 units of blood were collected. Of the donors, three registered to give blood for the first time.
The need for blood donations is constant. The American Red Cross estimates someone in the United States needs blood every 12 seconds, with more than 41,000 donations needed daily. Prospective donors must be at least 17 and weigh at least 110 pounds. Visit http://www.redcrossblood.org/indianaohio for more information or to locate a blood drive nearby.
