Blood Drive in Farmington Hills Jan. 10

Blood Drive in Farmington Hills Jan. 10

Farmington Hills, MI – The Southeastern Michigan branch of the American Red Cross will sponsor a blood drive on Wednesday, January 10 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Costick Center, located at 28600 W. Eleven Mile Road between Middlebelt and Inkster in Farmington Hills.  Anyone who is an attempting donor at the blood drive will be entered in a raffle to win one of two $25 gas gift cards.

Members of the community are urged to “circulate the love” and donate blood to help counteract the shortfall that occurs in January due to the cold weather and the demands of the New Year.  Blood donations are used for emergency and trauma care, surgeries, and the treatment of serious diseases.

To make an appointment to donate on January 10, call 248-473-1800 or register online at www.redcrossblood.org.  Enter the sponsor code costickcenter and follow the instructions to set up an appointment time for the blood drive.

Giving blood takes approximately one hour.  Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years of age or older.  If a parent is present to fill out a permission form on the day of the blood drive, 16-year-olds will be allowed to donate blood.

For more information, call 1-800-448-3543 or visit www.redcrossblood.org
