Hospitals in the Coachella Valley say they need people to donate blood, especially those with type “O” negative.
Supplies are reportedly running low of the “universal donor” for red cells, needed for emergency transfusions when there is not enough time to check for a patient’s blood type.
You can help out this Friday. We are holding a blood drive at the our studios at 42650 Melanie Place, Palm Desert. It goes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Call (760) 773-0342 to schedule an appointment.
Your good deed will be rewarded. When you give a pint of blood you’ll get a voucher for a pint of Baskin Robbins ice cream.
If you can’t make it out this Friday don’t forget you can always donate to local blood banks.
