Upcoming Cannon County Community Red Cross Blood Drive takes place Thursday July 18th at the Woodbury Lions Club.
As one of the American Red Cross most valued Blood Program Leaders, they ask for your help in a time of emergency need. Right now, blood donations are leaving the shelves faster than they're coming in. That means patients are at risk for delayed surgeries or treatment. Don't wait until the letters A, B and O are completely missing from the hospital blood bank shelves, the time to act is now. Encourage your donors to help fill the #MissingTypes by scheduling their lifesaving appointments today!
Here's how you can maximize your impact and help us overcome this blood emergency:
Donate Blood- If eligible, lead by example and be the first to donate at your upcoming drive.
Spread the Word. Share news of the blood emergency and how easy it is to donate, on social media, and encourage donors to help fill the #MissingTypes by giving blood this summer with the #RedCross.
Use These Tools to Exceed Your Blood Drive Goal.
Use the Blood Drive Management Portal to easily recruit and schedule appointments.
Confirm appointments and encourage donors to complete the pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire using RapidPass.
Check out the Blood Drive Sponsor Alert for more information on how you can ensure patient care isn't impacted or delayed by this blood emergency.
Connect. Ask colleagues, friends and family to donate and encourage every donor to ask their connections to donate with them. Every donor scheduled means more lives saved!
Thank you for your commitment to help save lives. Together we can overcome this blood emergency and fill the #MissingTypes. Thank you for going above and beyond to help patients and families in need!
