AMERICAN RED CROSS ADDS BLOOD DRIVES IN RESPONSE TO SHORTAGE CAUSED BY COVID-19
In response to the critical need for blood, the American Red Cross of the Illinois River Valley will host a Blood Drive at the Recreation Center, 900 W. Romeo Rd. in the Drdak Room on Monday, July 27, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
If you are healthy, feeling well and eligible to give blood or platelets, please make an appointment to donate as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, go to www.RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Type O donations are especially needed right now.
The Red Cross only collects blood from individuals who are healthy and feeling well at the time of donation.
Donating blood does not impact or weaken the immune system.
