Cape Fear Valley Blood Donor Center has put out an urgent need for you to donate blood here in Fayetteville. And it might just get you some free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts (see below).
Thank goodness for my mobile device. I am learning that my cell phone calendar forgets nothing and keeps me on track. A couple days ago, I was reminded that it is time for me to donate blood. That’s perfect timing as there is currently that urgent need for blood donors right here in Fayetteville.
My first time donating was while attending Southeastern Community College in Whiteville. Somewhere, I still have my Red Cross donation card.
Earlier this month, Cape Fear Valley talked about the importance of why you should donate blood in this critical shortage level.
“We want to advise people, if they or their family members know they will soon be needing surgery, or have a surgery scheduled at any hospital in the Cape Fear Valley Health system, please come donate now and do a directed donation,” said Blood Donor Center Manager Amy Fisher. “Some of these patients include those who are scheduled to have a high-risk birth, cardiac patients and oncology patients.”
At the time of that release on January 6, they were short about 75 percent on available blood units.
There are always a million great reasons to point out why becoming a blood donor in Fayetteville is so important, but let me share 3 great reasons to donate.
