WHAT
Rex Healthcare will hold a "Save Our Summer" blood drive this Friday at the Rex Donor Center. Due to vacation and travel, the summer months are historically a time when blood supply is low, and more donors are needed. All blood types are currently needed, especially O positive and O negative.

Community members who that donate on Friday will be registered in an afternoon drawing that includes prizes such as passes to the N.C. Zoo, restaurant gift certificates, passes to Carolina Mudcats and Durham Bulls games and gift baskets from various sponsors.

Donors can also donate blood platelets, which are also in short supply. Those donations benefit burn patients and cancer patients the most.

Sign up online at www.mysignup.com/sos or call (919) 784-4750. To learn more about donating blood with Rex Blood Services, visit rexhealth.com/blood.
