Phi Theta Kappa to host blood drive Feb. 6

26 January 2018

A blood donation shortage has swept the country due to recent severe weather conditions. The American Red Cross is urging those who are able to donate to help beat the shortage and give hope and healing to cancer patients, accident victims, chronically ill children, and more.

The Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Pratt Community College will host a blood drive on Tuesday, Feb. 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dennis Lesh Sports Arena. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card, driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.

Appointments to donate can be made at redcrossblood.org. Walk-ins are also welcome to the event. This year all donors who come to donate blood at the blood drive will receive a FREE T-Shirt courtesy of the Red Cross while supplies last.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
