With half as many blood products currently in the American Red Cross inventory as this time last year, the Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donors of all types. Unseasonably early warm weather may be a contributing factor to the 50,000 donation shortfall in June as many regular donors got an early start on summer activities, and aren’t taking time to give blood or platelets. But the need remains constant. In fact, every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood.
Donors are needed to help patients now, and to replenish the blood supply. The Red Cross would greatly appreciate your support. You can find more information at www.redcrossblood.org by typing in your zip code.
The next blood drive in Marysville is scheduled for July 23, 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM at the American Legion.
