Performance Subaru Blood Drive February 21, 2018

This season of flu and winter colds partnered with the winter weather that has hit our area this season has created a critical need for the blood.  So Performance Subaru wants to help this need by hosting the American Red Cross and their need for blood. Our drive will be in our showroom on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 11:30 am and last until 4:00 pm. This drive is open to our staff and to the public to donate.

 

Are you a Power Red?  These blood types are O, B-, or A and help the people on many different levels.

 

Learn more about Power Reds below:

“Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact.  During this type of donation, red blood cells are separated from other blood components and platelets are safely and comfortably returned to the donor.”

 

Type O Negative is the Universal blood type and what emergency personnel reaches for in trauma situations when there isn’t time to determine a patient's blood type.  This blood type is also used for babies who need transfusions”

 

“Types A- and B- can be transfused to Rh+ or negative patients.”

 

Tattoos are also no longer a reason to wait a year to give blood.  As long as you received your tattoo from a licensed tattoo parlor, you are still eligible to give blood.

 

We are aiming to give 25-30 units, but more we really hope to exceed that goal. A great way to save time on the day of donation is to pre-register with Rapid Pass.  Rapid Pass allows you to enter your medical history before your visit to donate blood.  

 

Visit the American Red Cross  blood donation page to schedule your time preference.  Enter the sponsor code PERFORMANCE.  You may also email Tracy.Tanner@HendrickAuto.com to register for a time.
