Give blood with the American Red Cross and help maintain the summer blood supply

Give blood with the American Red Cross  and help maintain the summer blood supply

UNDATED (June 3, 2014) — The American Red Cross encourages eligible blood donors to make and keep donation appointments to maintain the summer blood supply and help prevent a shortage. Donors of all blood types are currently needed, especially those with type O negative, B negative and A negative.

While the need for blood remains constant during the summer, donations drop. Between June and August, on average, two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what hospitals need. This seasonal decline could be overcome if just two additional donors – above what is expected – give blood at each Red Cross blood drive this summer.

Food Safety (GAP, GHP) Training Workshop May 20 at UAPB

Food Safety (GAP, GHP) Training Workshop May 20 at UAPB

PINE BLUFF, Ark. – A Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) and Good Handling Practices (GHP) training workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, May 20, at the S.J. Parker Extension Complex auditorium on the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff campus. The workshop will begin at 10 a.m.

 

This food safety workshop is designed to help vegetable and fruit producers and packing shed managers prepare for and pass the GAP audit, which is required for GAP certification. Certification is necessary as many local vegetable retailers require vegetable fields or packing sheds to be GAP certified before they will buy the vegetables from producers.

 

Those completing the training will receive certificates of completion, which may be used in the GAP audits to prove attendance at food safety training.
