Join us to save lives this spring!
American Red Cross Provides Comfort and Support to Many Already Impacted by Spring Storm Season
Thousands of people in multiple states are facing blizzards, wildfires and floods, and more than 1,100 American Red Cross disaster workers are on the ground providing emergency service to those affected. More than 515 people recently spent to the night in Red Cross and community shelters in Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi. Unfortunate events like these highlight the importance of being ready when disaster strikes. We are a proud supporter of the American Red Cross. Like the emergency room of a hospital, the Red Cross has to be ready 24/7 to answer the call to help. The blood that’s on the shelves now will help in an emergency situation. Your donation is needed to help ensure a stable blood supply, and eligible donors are encouraged to give blood this spring before the busy summer season begins.
Every day, the Red Cross must collect 14,000 blood donations to help meet the needs of hospital patients across the country. Your donation may help accident victims, organ transplant patients and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease.
You’re invited to partner with us and donate blood at our upcoming blood drive:
