Donor Recruitment Supervisor for Vitalant Dianne Scott visited Kindred Coffee Hour on Friday to speak to guests about National Blood Donor Month. According to Scott,  1 in 5 people will need blood in their lifetime.

 

She stated that many people, even usual donors, forget about donating blood over the holiday season. Since blood donations can only stay on the shelf for 42 days, this means that local blood banks are at risk of running critically low. In fact, Vitalant blood banks in the Permian Basin are at a critical level.

 

"Right this minute we're on a critical need for blood. That means, that there is not enough blood on the shelf. If there was a catastrophe or anything that happens, we would not have enough blood to take care of it," said Scott.

 

Anyone wanting to donate blood can visit bloodhero.com to sign up for an upcoming blood drive. Scott advised that up to 6 people can be saved by just 1 pint of donated blood. She noted that all blood types are needed, but O- blood is especially vital because it can be administered to anyone. Anyone can donate blood as long as they are healthy, and donors aged 16 and up are welcomed to donate.

 

The next blood drives coming up in Big Spring are at Back In Motion on Feb. 7th, and at Cosden Federal Credit Union on Feb. 14th.

 

If you would like to host a blood drive, contact Dianne Scott at 432-296-8755 for more information.
