Blood Drive ~ September 15th
The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations to prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were temporarily paused earlier this spring in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The demand blood has grown by 30% after a sharp decline in early spring amid this rapidly changing and complex public health crisis. However, blood drives continue to be canceled as businesses and community organizations remain closed. There is no known end to the current crisis, and Red Cross is committed to having blood available for patients in need.
