|Our American Red Cross blood drive is just around the corner! We can’t thank you enough for helping to meet our community’s blood needs during the summer months.
During the months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what hospital patients need. This could add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations during the summer, but the need remains constant.
If you have not already please consider making an appointment to give blood on Tuesday, June 25th from 8-5pm at Grace Church. Visit www.redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code ‘chpeds’ to schedule an appointment.
Chapel Hill Pediatrics has also dedicated the month of July and August for platelet donations at the American Red Cross (4737 University Drive, #3 University Place, Durham NC 27707). If you are interested in donating platelets please contact Marci Allen at 919-493-3551 x 409 and let her know that you would like to donate on behalf of Chapel Hill Pediatrics.
Summer is often a difficult time to collect blood, but together we can ensure blood products are available for all patients in need.
Thank you for your support,
The Staff at Chapel Hill Pediatrics
