Blood Drive at St. Peter's

Date: 08/03/12

The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive at St. Peter’s Hospital, Thursday, Aug. 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Education Center.  St. Peter’s is located at 2475 Broadway; please use the Main Entrance off of Winne Avenue.

With extreme heat keeping some donors at home and severe storms forcing the cancellation of dozens of blood drives, Red Cross donations are at the lowest they have been in 15 years, creating an emergency need for donors of all blood types.

The Red Cross must collect more than 700 pints of blood each week to meet the needs of patients in more than 30 hospitals and transfusion centers in Montana.  Blood collected at Helena blood drives serves the local community first, with excess shipped anywhere in the country where there is a need. 

Appointments can be made at  www.redcrossblood.org, enter sponsor code: st.petes, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.  Walk-ins are welcome, but the wait may be longer as those with appointments are given first priority.
