Sloan-Hendrix HOSA is giving back to the community with a Red Cross blood drive.
Sloan-Hendrix HOSA Chapter will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, December 13, 2023, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Sloan-Hendrix High School Student Center, located at #3 Greyhound Circle Imboden, AR.
For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 870-869-2361 ext. 153 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code: SLOANHS
With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one, or neighbor.
Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients, and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.
The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative, and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone and is often used to treat trauma patients.
Thank you for your support,
Sloan-Hendrix Blood Program Leader
