During Red Cross Month in March, the American Red Cross invites individuals to become everyday heroes by giving blood. There will be a blood donation opportunity on Tuesday, Mar. 29, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Greenbrier East High School.
March has been recognized as Red Cross Month by every U.S. president since 1943. Red Cross Month is a celebration of supporters who are the face of the Red Cross in their communities, helping to prepare for and bringing help and hope after emergencies.
Heroes of all blood types are needed to ensure a sufficient blood supply this spring. The Red Cross must collect approximately 14,000 blood and platelet donations every day for patients.
Make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
