Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati is inviting the Cincinnati community to start their new year with a lifesaving blood donation during National Blood Donor Month.
All donors who give blood, platelets or plasma at a Hoxworth Donor Center or a community blood drive through January 13 will receive a free scarf as a thank you for their donation.
“With the new year approaching and new resolutions being made, we hope that the Cincinnati community considers volunteer blood donation a top priority for 2020,” said Alecia Lipton, Hoxworth spokesperson. “To encourage just that, we are kicking off the new year — and National Blood Donor Month — with limited-edition Hoxworth donor scarves that will be given to all donors as a thank you for taking the time to help us save lives.”
The month of January has been declared National Volunteer Blood Donor Month since 1970 and is a time to recognize regular blood donors and encourage others in the community to start donating. Lipton notes that blood centers across the U.S. see a drop in donor turnout during the winter months.
Hoxworth needs to collect at least 400 units of blood and 50 units of platelets each day to keep up with the demand of over 30 local hospitals. Donors can schedule their donation by calling (513) 451-0910 or by visiting www.hoxworth.org.
Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati was founded in 1938 and serves over 30 hospitals and medical facilities in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Hoxworth collects blood from local donors to help save the lives of patients in area hospitals. Hoxworth Blood Center. All Types Welcome.
