In response to critically low blood supplies in the region, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina is hosting a community blood drive at its offices in Cary on Thursday, June 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Following is more information about the drive.

WHAT:
The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina is hosting a blood drive in partnership with The Blood Connection, an organization that facilitates blood donations. The drive will take place Thursday, June 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The drive is open to the public. All donors will receive a $20 gift card. Donors must be in good health, at least 17 years old (16 years old with written parental consent), and weigh at least 110 pounds for whole blood donation. Donors may schedule an appointment by visiting https://donate.thebloodconnection.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/173552.

Time: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

WHERE:
Baptist State Convention of North Carolina
205 Convention Drive
Cary, N.C. 27511

WHY:
Health officials report that the local blood supply is critically low in our area after months of historically low blood donor turnout, and the community is close to a blood shortage. By taking 30 minutes of your time to give blood, you can save lives. More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day. One donation can help save three lives.
