Scottsdale Quarter and Vitalant Blood Drive
July 13 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Scottsdale Quarter has partnered with Vitalant to host an urgent blood drive donation event Tuesday, July 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The bloodmobile will be parked in the loading zone next to Design Within Reach.
Currently, the nation is experiencing a severe blood donation shortage as the demand increases. Nonprofit organization, Vitalant, has less than a needed four-day supply of most blood types and below a two-day supply of type O blood to meet patient needs at a moment’s notice.
All types of blood are needed, but especially type O blood donations – the most transfused blood type. Type O is what’s often used in trauma situations, specially type O negative, because it can be transfused to patients with any blood of type in an emergency room setting.
