With the Labor Day weekend upon us, we need to do our part and make sure there is an ample blood supply at Coffee Memorial Blood Center.  The need for blood has a tendency to rise during holiday weekends because of accidents.  Right now there is a urgent need for blood donations.  So please stop by the Coffee Memorial Blood Center to give the gift of live today.

The blood types needed immediately are O+, O-, B+ and A-.  If you have any of these blood types we encourage you to stop into the center today.  By doing this, you are saving a persons life.

Once your blood is donated, it takes 1 - 2 days to test it, process it and get it ready to be given to a patient.  The center is wanting to be prepared for the holiday weekend.  The Labor Day weekend brings travel, kids out and about playing and sometimes regular donors are unable to stop by and donate.  So if you do have any of the above blood types please give the gift of life.

The Coffee Memorial Blood Center is located at  7500 Wallace Blvd., they are open today from 9:00am-5:30pm; Friday 8:00am-4:30pm; and Saturday 8:00am-12:00pm. For more information you can visit www.thegiftoflife.org.

All eligible donors will receive this really cool shirt in honor of Cancer Awareness month.
