We are inviting the community to schedule an appointment to donate blood and help save lives!" says Cheri Pastula, Manager of Community Relations for the Toledo Walleye.

While the need for blood is constant, particular times of year present unique challenges for blood collection.

"At any given moment, patients rely on life-saving blood products. The need is constant -- even in emergency situations," said Tiffany Gradel, Spokesperson for the Western Lake Erie Region of the Red Cross.  "The quickest help will come from local blood donors."

How to Donate Blood

To schedule an appointment to donate please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org for more information. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. Please bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of valid ID when you come to donate.

About the American Red Cross

The Western Lake Erie Region serves 11 counties, and needs to collect about 300 units of blood a day to meet patient need in 23 hospitals. In addition to supplying nearly half of the nation's blood, the American Red Cross teaches lifesaving skills, provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization—not a government agency—and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
