This July, the American Red Cross continues to stress that blood donors are critically needed right now to support lifesaving transfusions this summer.  Donors of all blood types are in demand, especially those with type O blood and donors giving platelets.

Every donation counts in the mission to keep blood products stocked for patients, including those facing life-threatening situations.  More than a quarter of all blood products each year are used in critical care and emergency room cases, highlighting the importance of generous blood donors.  Be a force for good.  Book a time to give blood by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

The Central Plains Region of the American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on Wednesday, July 17th from 11:30 am to 6 pm at Beloit Elementary School, located at 1201 N. Bell Street.
