TYPE “O” Blood Desperately Needed!

ASHEVILLE NC – Feeling a little dark and dismal this Halloween? Discover the joy of giving and saving lives.

NC Red Cross says that there is such a shortage of type O blood that hospitals are having to delay surgeries.

Monday, October 31 from 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., Buncombe County Government and Pack Memorial Library are sponsoring our annual Halloween American Red Cross Blood DriveĀ and… “Ve vant your blood!”

Every donor may save up to three lives with their donation… and in exchange, you get the warm feeling that comes from giving. AND, this year, you also receive a black Halloween-themed Red Cross t-shirt, a bag of treats, and a chance to win a wonderful door prize! All the best ghouls and ghosts will be there.

Remember, if Dracula rings your doorbell that evening, you can say you already gave. Go to www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code 12597 to make an appointment, or contact Carla Hollar at [email protected].
