SOMC, Hoxworth hosting blood drive on November 6

Southern Ohio Medical Center and the Hoxworth Blood Center will partner to host a blood drive open to hospital employees and the community from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on November 6 in Suite 207 of the Waller Building on SOMC’s Main Campus.

Supplies are critically low due to the recent storm activity on the East coast, so all participants and blood types are welcome and encouraged to donate. Donors will receive a long-sleeved Cincinnati Bengals T-shirt while supplies last. (Sizes may vary.)

Those wishing to donate must have a photo ID, be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health. Participants with tattoos or sterile piercings will be accepted, so long as they were administered in a licensed facility in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana.

Appointments are preferred and can be made online at www.Hoxworth.org/plus or by calling 740-356-8045, 740-356-8670 or 740-356-8118.
