Blood donation opportunity next week
There will be an American Red Cross blood drive opportunity next week for our area. A blood drive will be held 12:30-5:30 p.m. Monday at Martin Luther High School in Northrop. As the coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to impact our lives, the American Red Cross is urging healthy, eligible individuals to give blood now to help prevent blood shortages that could result from lower donor participation. Donors of all blood types are encouraged to give blood. As a reminder, the Red Cross will be taking additional safety precautions at the donation site. To make an appointment or to donate blood, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), visit RedCrossBlood.org or download the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
