American Red Cross Blood Drive: Oxford
The American Red Cross is sponsoring a two-day Blood Drive at its Quintard Mall location. The drive is sponsored by local radio stations Rock 105.9 and The Big 95. Officials say it’s a special competition between the two stations. Territory Account Manager Donna Brittain says this time of year additional blood is always needed. She says the real winners are the patients who are waiting to receive the donated blood. Brittain says it only takes 15 to 20 minutes to donate blood. And the whole process takes 45 minutes. She says you even get a mini physical. With technicians taking your temperature, checking your blood pressure, and iron levels. She adds that the Red Cross has made it even easier to donate blood. They have a new donor APP. The drive will continue tomorrow from 12 noon to 6:00PM. Donors will also be given a movie gift card from AMSTAR.
