OWASA to sponsor blood drive in Carrboro Feb. 24

The Orange Water and Sewer Authority will sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive Friday.

The blood drive will be held from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the community room on the lower floor of OWASA’s Administration Building located at 400 Jones Ferry Road in Carrboro.

Caroline Allison, American Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative for the Carolinas Blood Services Region, said the winter months are particularly challenging.

She said there is also always a special need for donors with type O negative blood, the universal blood type.

To donate blood, an individual needs to be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old or 16 years old with parental consent.

Donors must bring photo identification to the blood drive.

Food will be provided by OWASA and Anna Maria’s Pizzeria.

Donors will also be entered to win a pair of round-trip domestic tickets from Delta Air Lines or one of three oceanfront vacation rentals at the Islander Inn and Suites on Emerald Isle.
