Red Cross need “Type O” blood, offering special Game of Thrones gifts

News

American Red Cross officials say they have a severe shortage of Type O blood.

Starting Monday they’ll have donation sites set up across the Valley over the next month. They say Type O blood is especially needed because it’s what emergency room workers reach for to save a life when there’s no time to figure out a patient’s blood type.

Red Cross reports they have a less than three-day supply of most blood types and also need more donors of all types.

“It helps people that are in need of donations of blood or platelets, in my case, which I believe is a lot of cancer people,” said David Pohl, who donates platelets every other week. “Come out and try it. You’ll be helping someone.”

Red Cross is partnering with HBO to give Game of Thrones fans the chance for a free trip to the show’s premiere if they donate before March 17.

See the following upcoming blood donation opportunities from February 25 to March 31. Standard rules for donation apply.
