Red Cross Blood Drive Part of the blood drive
The Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING DURING THE PANDEMIC – BLOOD IS NEEDED!
A blood drive is an essential activity, as outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is imperative for community health and public preparedness plans to maintain blood collection during this challenging time to ensure patient survival.
NEED NEVER STOPS
Our commitment is tested every year with unexpected weather and illness events—it is during this time
that we must hold tighter to our humanity and protect the most vulnerable among us.
