During November, a time to give thanks and celebrate Veterans Day, the American Red Cross invites eligible donors to give blood and honor those who have served our country in the U.S. armed forces.
Carroll County residents are encouraged to donate blood from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at Carroll County High School.
All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients.
A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.
High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
For more information, call (800) 448-3543.
