Hoxworth Blood Center has an emergency need for donors

Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati has an urgent need for blood donors. All eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment to donate blood at their earliest convenience.

“The frigid temperatures have resulted in the cancelations of blood drives and low donor turn out at our Neighborhood Donor Centers” states Hoxworth spokesperson, Alecia Lipton. “We need for all eligible donors to roll up their sleeves in order to ensure we have blood for patients in our local hospitals.”

In appreciation and recognition for generously giving the gift of life, all blood donors at a Neighborhood Donor Center during the entire month of January will receive a FREE Hoxworth fleece blanket.

Walk-ins are always welcome. Appointments can be scheduled by calling (513) 451-0910.
