    Red Cross calls on Pittsboro blood donors

    Thousands of people donate blood in our area each year, and their generous gift has saved countless lives. But the need for blood is constant, and the recent disasters have wiped out many important donor sites. The spring and summer are challenging times to get blood donors, as many go on vacation and are involved in other activities. The goal is for Chatham County to step up and offset this seasonal loss that comes at such a critical time when we’ve seen devastation in Lee and Wake Counties.

    The Red Cross hopes to avoid a shortage by encouraging the community to join together making giving the "Gift of Life" a part of their spring and summer plans.

    The Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides life-saving blood to many local hospitals and must have 1,600 people give blood and platelets each weekday to meet hospital demand. Countless receive life-saving transfusions every day. Natural disasters such as the recent tornadoes increase this demand. There is no substitute for blood; volunteer donors are the only source.

    You can help the American Red Cross change lives by donating blood at the Pittsboro Community Blood Drive on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, from 10:00 AM-2:30 PM in the Bellemont Station parking lot at the intersection of 15/501 and Hwy 64. Registration will be held at New Branch Chiropractic & Health Center, the drives sponsor. Walk-ins will be welcome or appointments can be made with Mollie Miller at 919-642-0555 or

    Blood and platelets may be donated every 56 days. If you are 17 and older (or 16 with parental consent) and weigh at least 110 lbs, you may be eligible to donate. Lots of people are able to donate now that in the past could not. If you have any questions on eligibility, please call 1-800-GIVE LIFE (448-3543) or visit

    Dr. Nygren can be reached for further comment at 919.642.0555.
