Hoxworth issued the following plea to eligible donors via email messaging earlier today: We hope that we can count on you as we have an emergency need for your A Positive blood type. Earlier this week we made an emergency plea for donations and while we have seen many individuals respond, we still have a ways to go before we have a strong blood supply.
The winter storms resulted in a loss of more than 25,000 donations across the country. Therefore, we cannot rely on acquiring blood from other communities. We need the Tri-State community to respond to our plea so we can supply lifesaving blood products to patients in area hospitals.
Remember when you donate with Hoxworth Blood Center, you are saving lives close to home. The lives of family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Can we count on you to make a lifesaving donation today through Tuesday of next week?
Hoxworth operates seven Neighborhood Donor Centers in Anderson, Blue Ash, Ft. Mitchell, West Chester, Tri-County, Western Hills, and the Hoxworth Center adjacent to University Hospital. Hoxworth also operates multiple mobile blood drives daily. Walk-ins are welcome; however, appointments are encouraged to maintain social distancing protocols. Call (513) 451-0910 or visit hoxworth.org to schedule.
