The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations. Please set up an appointment to donate at HESCO’s annual blood drive on Monday, June 25, 2018 at HESCO HQ, 30 Inwood Rd, Rocky Hill, CT. Please, sign up now and ask family, friends, and coworkers to sign up and spread the word!
Without A, B & O, we can’t save anybody. You are the #MissingType we need. You might not realize how important the letters A, B and O can be until they’re gone. A, B and O are also our blood types and there aren’t enough new people donating them. And when they go missing from hospital shelves, patients cannot receive the lifesaving care they need.
- Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.
- Less than 3 percent of the population donates blood in a given year.
- Every year, fewer new blood donors step up.
Join us on a lifesaving mission. Together, we can reverse this trend before it’s too late. We invite you to become part of an exciting, international campaign called Missing Types, to inspire both new and existing blood donors to give blood this summer and help fill the gaps.
