FSU to Host Blood Drive Feb. 20

Frostburg State University will host the Red Cross for a blood drive Tuesday, Feb. 20, in the Manicur Assembly Hall in the Lane Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Winter weather and poor driving conditions have caused area blood inventories to reach critical levels. Lower than usual blood inventories are expected during the winter season, but this year an increased demand for blood products has made the situation even more urgent.

There are eight blood types, and six of these types are at less than optimum levels. Three types - O Negative, A Negative and O Positive - are at less than a two-day supply. This is cause for concern as a constant blood supply is needed to continue to supply Western Maryland Health Systems, Potomac Valley Hospital and Garrett County Memorial Hospital.

Donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh at least 105 pounds and be in good health. For information, call 1-(800) 732-0383.

FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. To request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, call (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
