Tamarack District Library is giving back to the community with Red Cross blood drive.

The Tamarack District Library will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on July 2, 2019 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. at the library.

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 1-800-RED-CROSS   or sign up online at http://fw.to/GXEIDCm

“Hosting a blood drive coincides with the Tamarack District Library core values of giving back to the community,” said Bethany Nettleton, Director. “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”

Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.

“The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.”

Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
