American Red Cross Holiday Hero Blood Drive
Every two seconds, someone in America needs blood. We know that the need for blood in our community is constant. Each day, blood centers depend on the selflessness of volunteer blood donors. We also know that during the summer months, the blood supply runs short. The Missing Types Campaign encourages people of all blood types to donate blood during this critical time. No matter what your particular blood type is, please make an appointment today to donate blood. Even if you don’t know your blood type, you can still give blood. Donors are notified of their blood type following their donation when they receive their Red Cross donor card.
You can also give during the Holiday Hero Blood Drive, July 10-12 at Churchill Downs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
You’ll be helping to save the life of someone in our community. That person may be an accident or burn victim. She may be undergoing life-saving surgery or an organ transplant. He may be getting treatment for leukemia or cancer or sickle cell disease.
Please call the Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS, that’s (1-800-733-2767) and make an appointment to donate. Do it today!
