Don't forget the next Bloodmobile visit from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday (May 14) at the Lions Club Building, 540 W Adams St.
Donors of all blood types - especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative - are needed to help ensure blood is available for patients this spring.
"Blood and platelet donations often decrease when regular donors are vacationing and school is out of session, but the need for blood is constant. Donors are needed in the weeks leading up to summer to help alleviate this seasonal decline," said Regina Raccuglia Conway, Red Cross communications manager.
To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
