Calling all healthy people, especially those with Type O blood – You are encouraged to donate your blood this week in Coffeyville. Only 7% of the U.S. population has type O-negative blood which can be transfused to patients with any blood type.
Right now the Red Cross has less than a two-day supply of type O blood for emergency rooms. As a thank you, with a valid email address, you can get a $5 Amazon gift card emailed to you.
Coffeyville's blood drive is this Thursday and Friday, the 16th the 17th at First Baptist Church, 304 W. 9th St. Download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App to make an appointment or get more details. Or visit redcrossblood.org or call 800-RED CROSS (that's 800-733-2767).
