facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

On Sunday, Feb. 16, Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church, 14240 N. Oracle Rd. at the corner of Mountainaire Rd., Catalina, will host a Red Cross Blood Drive that will provide blood supplies to 25 area hospitals. The drive begins at 11 a.m. and will continue until 4 p.m. The Red Cross process might take 45 minutes including paper work, but the actual act of donating blood lasts between 5 and 7 minutes.

And then the canteen will provide participants with juice, cookies and crackers!

There is no age limit on donating blood in Arizona, although certain restrictions apply to medical conditions. Those interested are encouraged to schedule an appointment at 1-800-733-2767 but walk-ins will be accepted. For questions about your personal eligibility call the above number.

The most sought-after blood type is O negative, and is generally used in local trauma units. However, all types are welcome! Do consider donating blood, saving a life, offering hope to a child/adult who desperately needs a transfusion. The Red Cross needs your support, as do many of your neighbors.
