The summer brings a heightened need for people to remember to donate blood. Vacations, lessons, and other activities get in the way of regularly scheduled blood donation appointments.
Blood products are being distributed to area hospitals almost as quickly as donations are coming in.
The Red Cross is urging all eligible donors to schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets. All blood types are needed, especially O negative, B negative and A negative.
Please encourage your family and friends to also help save lives by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visiting redcrossblood.org today to make an appointment.
Thank you. We truly appreciate your lifesaving gift to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients this su
