Blood Type Facts

There are eight different common blood types, which are determined by the presence or absence of certain antigens, which are substances that can trigger an immune response if they are foreign to the human body. Since some antigens can trigger a patient’s immune system to attack the transfused blood, safe blood transfusions depend on careful blood typing and cross-matching.

There are 4 major blood groups determined by the presence or absence of two antigens (A and B) on the surface of red blood cells:

Blood Group Antigen
A Has only A antigen on red cells (and B antibody in the plasma)
B Has only B antigen on red cells (and A antibody in the plasma)
AB Has both A and B antigens on red cells (but neither A nor B antibody in the plasma)
O Has neither A nor B antigens on red cells (but both A and B antibody are in the plasma)

The holidays are fast approaching! This is a great time of giving and a time of reflecting on what’s important in our lives. Not everyone will be celebrating the holidays or have the opportunity to gather with family and friends. For many, every day is a struggle to find adequate food and possibly a safe place to call home. At Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, our mission is to help those less fortunate find safe, affordable housing, and to build communities and hope

We realize that there are numerous ways to make a difference and our hope is to continue to succeed in our mission and find opportunities within the community that go beyond. During the week of November 16th through November 23rd, we are holding a Canned Food Drive in both the Raleigh and Cary ReStore locations

Bring your canned goods and SAVE $1 for every can with a maximum savings of $5 OFF your purchase! Raleigh ReStore location will donate collected goods to Catholic Parish Outreach and the Cary ReStore  location will donate to Dorcas Ministries.

It’s our way of making a difference… One can at a time!

WHAT: Canned Food Drive

WHY: SAVE $1 with each can donated with a maximum of $5 Savings on your ReStore purchase. Donated goods given to Catholic Parish Outreach and Dorcas Ministries – just in time for Thanksgiving!

WHO: Anyone stopping by the ReStore is encouraged to participate!
