O and A negative blood needed
June 22, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
At this time The Blood Alliance is critically low on O-Negative (the Universal Donor) and A-Negative blood types. The alliance will be accepting donations at the Orange Park Mall by the food court entrance Saturday, June 22 from 11 am to 7 pm as part of an effort to build up supplies for the July 4 holiday.
"It is vitally important for [the alliance] to head into the holiday weekend with a robust supply, to ensure our local hospitals have blood available to treat patients in need, at a time when most people are busy with holiday activities and not thinking about donating blood," reads a press release from the organization. "All registered donors will be entered into a random drawing to win two (2) Daytona Coke 400 race tickets scheduled for July 6, 2013, and other giveaways while supplies last."
