Potential donors are reminded there is a real need to turn out for one of these blood drives. The severe winter weather has forced the cancellations of hundreds of drives resulting in the loss of many thousands of units of blood and platelets. Supplies are in extremely low inventory.
If time is a factor you can make an appointment by calling 1-800-733-2767 (1-800-Red Cross). You can also make an appointment online. Go to www.redcrossblood.org / Click on Make a Blood Donation Appointment.
