Blood Donors Needed


Des Moines, IA (RI) — While Iowa launched a campaign this week to aim for zero fatalities on the state’s roadways, accidents are inevitable and hospitals will need blood to save the injured.

April Oppliger (OP-ligger), with the American Red Cross, says donors are urgently needed in Iowa to give blood.

The process of donating blood takes about an hour and that one pint could save as many as three lives. She has a simple message for Iowans — give blood.

All blood types are needed, but demand is up for three types: O-negative, B-negative and A-negative. Find the Red Cross office nearest to you by calling: 800-Give-Life.
