Every unit of donated blood can help save up to three lives. Each recipient of that blood donation has his or her own story. He or she could be an accident or trauma victim, cancer patient, a mother giving birth, a premature baby, a transplant recipient or surgical candidate. The impact of that unit of blood goes beyond that patient – it is multiplied by the impact it has on that person’s loved ones who are thankful for the unit that was donated.
The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for organizations like Guthrie. We are proud to support our community and be a part of the impact that the Red Cross makes every day.
Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Volunteer Services will be hosting its next blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross at Guthrie’s Sayre Campus Patterson Auditorium on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. and on Monday, Sept. 26 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Have a heart and schedule your donation appointment online, through the app or call the Volunteer Services Dept. at 570-887-4242. C’mon! We know you’ve got it in you!
