The holiday season is a challenging time of year for maintaining the blood supply at area hospitals. Those who must miss an appointment to donate are asked to reschedule as soon as possible.
The Senior Center of Sidney-Shelby County community blood drives include the opportunity to donate platelets and plasma, which are critical for the treatment of cancer, trauma, transplant and burn patients. Donors with blood types A, AB or B positive are in high demand. Individuals can find out more at www.GivingBlood.org or talk to an apheresis specialist at 937-461-3220.
