Give blood Aug. 12

Residents of Summit County will have an opportunity to help save lives by participating in the Bonfils Blood Center blood drive from 1- 6:30 p.m., Aug. 12 at Summit High School.

“The Colorado community relies on people who care about others, especially when it comes to our community blood supply,” said Bonfils recruitment manager Eric Watson. “The summer is a difficult time for our community blood supply because donations tend to decline, and, at the same time, the need for blood transfusions increases.”

Donors must be over the age of 18 (17 with a guardian’s consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good general health with no history of HIV/AIDS. Potential donors will be asked a series of questions about travel outside the United States, and they will be given information on SARS and West Nile Virus.

Bonfils Blood Center needs to collect 4,000 units every week to meet Colorado’s needs and to maintain a state of blood-supply readiness for unforeseen events. Bonfils provides blood to more than 115 hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout Colorado. All who donate will receive a 60th anniversary T-shirt and a coupon for a free chicken sandwich from Chik-fil-A.

Call Bonfils at 1-800-365-0006 for more information.
