Blood Drive This Sunday

Blood Drive This Sunday

Sun Staff Reports

Right now, there is an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types. The need for type O blood is especially urgent, as it is the most transfused blood type. O-negative is what emergency room personnel reach for when there is not time to determine a patient’s blood type.

To help support hospitals and patients, the Alameda Elks lodge is sponsoring the Alameda Community Blood Drive from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this Sunday, Aug. 29 at the Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave.

Your donation can help ensure doctors and hospitals have what they need to help patients in need, so please schedule an appointment if you’re currently healthy.
