Helping to maintain a healthy blood supply

 

West Branch, MI– The American Red Cross and Horizon Senior Living III is teaming up to help replenish the blood supply. Horizon Senior Living III is encouraging its community to role up their sleeves and donate blood during this vital time.

“I’ve been involved with the American Red Cross when we did blood drives at the American Legion in St. Helen and really wanted Horizon Senior Living to participate as well”, said Karen Soderblom, Horizon Senior Living III Administrator. “I really understand the need and the Red Cross is such a wonderful organization.

The need for blood and blood products is always constant. However, this summer the American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region is facing a critical blood shortage and has issued an appeal for blood donors.

The blood drive will be held Tuesday, August 16, from 10am until 3:45pm at the Horizon Senior Living III (613 Progress Street) in West Branch. During the blood drive donors are encouraged to take a tour of the brand new Horizon Senior Living III facility.

As an added incentive for donors, everyone who comes out to donate blood or platelets in August has a chance to win a $250 Meijer gift card, a $125 Meijer gas card, and a $500 Best Buy gift card. For more information about this and additional upcoming blood drives, call 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit www.redcrossblood.org.
