Dave Polcyn/News Journal William Barndollar of Shelby, gave blood for the 144th time Wednesday at a blood drive at the Richland Mall, Oct 30th, 2012.
That is a total of 18 gallons donated through the Red Cross.(Photo: Dave Polcyn) The American Red Cross has issued a call for type O negative and AB blood donors to make an appointment to donate after severe winter weather in some parts of the country caused about 250 Red Cross blood drives to be cancelled in March, resulting in more than 8,500 uncollected blood donations.
To schedule an appointment, donors may use the free Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.
