Blood drive slated for Friday in Othello

Print Article

OTHELLO — A blood drive will be held on Friday from 12:15 to 3 p.m. at the Othello City Hall, 500 E. Main St. Everyone is encouraged to participate.

“Every donor matters and you can make a difference in someone’s life!” said a City of Othello Facebook post on June 3. “Remember, you alone can help up to three people with a single blood donation. As the only supplier of blood to area hospitals, Vitalant needs 200 donors per day to supply the community with the components needed for chemotherapy, transfusions, and major surgeries.”

Vitalant’s website reports “during a whole blood donation, approximately 500 ml of blood is collected from a donor. It is then later separated into components (such as red cells, plasma and platelets) for patient transfusion.”

Appointments can be scheduled on Vitalant’s website or by emailing Tanya Morelos at tmorelos@othellowa.gov.
