Blood mobile looks to relieve shortage

The American Red Cross Blood Mobile will be at the Parkview Mennonite Brethren Church from 2-6 p.m., Monday, Jan. 8.

The Red Cross is looking for blood donors to help with the current shortage of blood and blood products.

All blood types are needed, but O-positive, the most common type of blood, is in greater demand. O-negative, the universal blood type that can be given to almost anyone, is also in great demand.

Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh more than 110 pounds, and be in general good health. Most medications do not defer people from donating blood.

For more information, or to make an appointment, call 1-888-719-8929.
