Spring is near!  As the seasons change, the American Red Cross is reminding the public that the need for blood doesn't take a break.  Blood remains at risk of running low this month.  Donors are crucial to helping the Red Cross avoid a blood shortage in the weeks to come.

Donors of all blood types, especially type O donors and platelet donors, are encouraged to make and keep appointments to donate.  Book a time to give by visiting, downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

The Central Plains Region of the American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on Wednesday, March 22nd from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm at Clay Center Community High School, located at 1630 Ninth Street in Clay Center.

When donors lend an arm this month, the Red Cross will lend a hand.  All who come to give blood, platelets or plasma March 1-31, 2023,​​​​ will receive a $10 Visa® Prepaid Card by email.  Plus, they'll be automatically entered for a chance to win a $3,000 Visa Prepaid Card – which could help toward expenses like gas or groceries.  There will be five lucky winners.  Details are available at
