“With continued high demand for blood in our community for the foreseeable
future, Community Blood Bank is calling on blood donors with type A and O to
assist patients needing blood transfusions,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive
Director, Community Blood Bank. “It has been hard to catch-up and build a stable
supply of blood for our community hospitals in the last several weeks. Just as we
see some improvement, we have several unexpected calls for blood that places
us in a critical state once again. It is ever so important that we fill our blood drive
appointment capacity to ensure we are maximizing all opportunities to catch up
with usage. Please donate blood when the bloodmobile is at Flandreau High
School on November 11.”

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent
form), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health. It is recommended
that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood. Please bring
an ID with you at the time of donation. For more information log onto .

Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and
takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our
local blood donors.
