AIHT Education will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Friday, October 25th 2019 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at 480 Lordship Blvd Stratford CT.
We’ll be working together to give back to the community in a truly life-changing way since each donation we collect can save up to three lives.
To make an appointment to donate, sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code ‘AIHT’.
There are many ways you can help, but most importantly we hope you come out to donate.
“Hosting a blood drive coincides with AIHT’s core values of giving back to the community,” said Ravish Shah, President “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”
Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.
“The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.”
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone and is often used to treat trauma patients.
