in honor of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day on May 8 – the birthday of International
Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement founder, Henry Dunant.
World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day recognizes the local and global impact of the Red
Cross mission. For more than 130 years, the American Red Cross has been helping people,
including those in need of blood transfusions, in communities across the U.S.. It is the only
blood services organization that also provides disaster relief, services for active and veteran
military personnel and their families, and health and safety training.
Last year, about 3.1 million volunteer blood donors rolled up a sleeve to help the Red Cross
meet the needs of patients at approximately 2,600 hospitals nationwide. Donors of all blood
types – especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative – are needed to help
ensure blood is available for patients this spring.
To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit
redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Those who are unable to give
blood can support blood donations and invite others to make a lifesaving donation by creating a
SleevesUp virtual blood drive at redcrossblood.org/SleevesUp.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities
5/1/2015: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church, 231 Westchester Drive
5/4/2015: 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., Jefferson Avenue Church of Christ, 521 South Jefferson Avenue
How to donate blood

or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age
(16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good
health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age

Cumberland County Sheriff Casey Cox has held six scheduled drug drop-off events through the communities of our county over the past year, where over a ton of prescription drugs and medication have been collected and properly disposed of; as a result of the Cumberland County sheriff’s Office and the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) working together to protect our citizens and environment, a permanent Prescription Drug Drop-Off Box has been placed at the Sheriff’s Office (90 Justice Center Drive, Crossville, TN, 38555) where citizens can dispose of any unused, unneeded, or outdated prescription medication. Such a box allows for the medication to be properly disposed of so that it neither endangers the environment nor our citizens, as many of the thefts and burglaries in Cumberland County come as a result of addictions to prescription drugs. Sheriff Cox said, “I can’t stress enough the importance of getting these unneeded or expired medications out of people’s homes… by getting these drugs and medications out of our homes it not only makes citizens less of a target, it also protects our children. The old common method of disposing prescriptions was to flush them down the toilet. This is the worst thing you can do because the drugs could eventually end up back in our water supply.” The drugs collected at the drop off box are taken to an Environmental Protection Agency-certified incinerator to be properly disposed of. Acceptable items to be dropped off as follows: prescription medication, all over-the-counter medication, pet medication, medicated ointments or lotions, liquid medications in leak-proof containers, inhalers, and pills in any packaging (glass, plastic containers, baggies/Ziploc, or foil).
