There are certain times of year when blood banks see a shortage in inventory and the only way to replenish the supply is through the generosity of donors. Currently, there is an emergency need for all types of blood.

IMG_5849The Amity Regional High School Chapter of the National Honor Society and the American Red Cross sponsored a blood drive at Amity High School on Monday, Oct. 27.

A steady stream of students volunteered to donate blood, some were first-timers (identified by a green sticker), while others were repeat donors (red stickers).

According to the teachers who were on hand to assist, there were no fainters this year — as of 2 p.m.

You never know when you may need a life-saving blood transfusion. Accidents and illnesses happen all the time when we least expect them and it would be tragic if the hospital you were in was experiencing a blood shortage when you need it most.

Every student who donated a pint today could help save up to 3 lives.

“Please support our community, with the gift of life,” said Paul Leahy of the Red Cross. “Every donation can save up to 3 lives. Every day someone somewhere needs blood. Without dedicated donors like you serving as a vital link between the blood supply and those who need blood, the Red Cross could not carry out its lifesaving mission.”

In order to donate you must be healthy — feel well and be able to perform normal activities.

If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control.

You must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds.

The Red Cross continually run blood drives..as the need is constant throughout the year. They do declare emergency blood needs around the holidays due to lack of donor flow.

Red blood has a shelf life of 42 days and platelets only 7 days.
