Right now, the American Red Cross is experiencing a severe blood shortage as the number of trauma cases, organ transplants, and elective surgeries rise – and deplete the nation’s blood inventory. Donors of all blood types, especially type O and those who can give platelets, are urged to make an appointment to give to prevent further impact to patients.
The White Sulphur Springs Public Library will hold a blood drive on Thursday, July 22, from 1 to 6 p.m. You can make an appointment to give the gift of life by visiting RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to schedule your blood or platelet donation appointment. You may also call the library at 304-536-1171 on weekdays between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to make an appointment.
The library is located at 344 Main Street West in White Sulphur Springs. The drive is made possible in part through the support of the White Sulphur Springs Lions.
