Red Cross blood drive here Oct. 5
Red Cross blood donation opportunity is coming to Minneota on Tuesday, Oct. 5. drive in Minneota. The blood drive will be held from 12:30-6:30 p.m. at the American Legion.
The Red Cross is experiencing an emergency blood shortage and must collect 10,000 additional blood products each week over the next month for the blood supply to recover and meet hospital and patient needs. Donors of all blood types, especially type O, are urged to make an appointment to give now and in the weeks ahead to overcome the current shortage.
Don’t wait. People across the country depend on the generosity of blood donors. Make an appointment to give blood as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
