All blood donors will again receive a special Clarendon Blood Donor T-Shirt, compliments of Chamberlain Motor Co., Donley State Bank and First Bank and Trust. Coffee Memorial Blood Center is asking everyone that is able; to give blood of Friday. "The 4th of July is a critical weekend and it is imperative that we maintain a safe, reliable supply of blood for the Panhandle area. We know that we can count on the Clarendon Community to come through for us once again this year", states Kitty Weidauer, Assistant Manager, Mobile Resources Department for Coffee Memorial Blood Center. The need for blood is so vital to so many. Blood cannot be manufac- tured in a laboratory, nor ordered from a gift catalog. The Blood Center, therefore, must seek it from the only place it exists --- the human body. You, as a blood donor, and others carry this marvelous gift of life within you and are the only source in procuring it for the injured and the ill. Blood is not a commodity that goes to the highest bidder. It is a life-saving fluid that is transfused only into the veins of those who need it the most. Coffee Memorial Blood Center provides the blood needs for Amaril- lo and forty-eight Panhandle communities. More than 400 pints of blood are needed weekly by patients in the 20 area hospitals the center serves. This number is incredible considering that less than 5 of every 100 persons donate blood. Physicians are scrutinizing and re-evaluating transfusion practices; the one-unit (whole blood) transfusion is a thing of the past, and more and more patients are recovering without receiving any blood. However, the continual discovery of new therapeutic uses creates the growing demand for blood and blood products. As long as there is llfe, there will be blood and a need for blood. Hundreds of Panhandle residents' lives rely on the kindness of volunteer blood donors who take one hour of certain days to give the "Gift of Life". If they don't, and people like you don't donate blood, it will not be there for anyone in need. Not for you! Not for anyone! After your blood is donated, it goes to the blood center laboratory for typing and testing. It is then labeled, stored at the proper refrigerated temperature, and distributed to area hospitals. Coffee Memorial Blood Center is licensed by the U.S. Food and Dru 8 Administration (FDA) and accredited by the Airican Association of Blood Banks (AABB). The FDA inspects the Blood Center at least annually to insure compliance with regulations established by FDA and mandated by federal law. These regulations are designed to assure the highest possible degree of safety of every unit of blood or blood product issued by the Blood Center for transfusion purposes. The AABB inspects the Blood Center every other year to insure compliance with the AABB Standards of Blood Centers and Transfusion Services which are internationally recognized as the most technically and scientifically thorough in existence. These standards are designed to assure the safety of blood and blood products as well as that of all blood donors. In addition, the Blood Center is now inspected by the Texas Depart- ment of Health to insure compliance with Clim'cal Laboratories Improve- merit Act administered by the U.S. Public Health Service. This final step is required for approval to participate as a Medicare provider. In addition to these regulations, standards and inspections, the Blood Center conducts a thorough internal Quafity Assurance Program and is constantly seeking improvements in the safety of both blood donors and blood products. It is our constant goal to provide the safest posm, ble blood products for on purposes to the people we strive to serve. We are so fortunate to have a community such as Clarendon that understands the importance of malntalnin a safe, tested supply of blood and is willing to support the effort. Each donor will get hot dogs, ice cream and that special "badge of courage", a Clarendon Blood Drive '94 T-Shirt sponsored by Chamberlain Motor Co., Donley County State Bank and Irn'st Bank and Trust.
