Consistent and steady blood donations are needed year-round to meet patient need. And while the need for blood is constant, blood donations can sometimes slump. Collecting blood during the winter, for instance, often presents a challenge since cold and snowy weather can prevent donors from making and keeping appointments.
You can help save lives and enjoy sweet treats at this year’s Life is Sweet Blood Drive. Make your blood or platelet donation appointment today by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or click here to schedule an appointment online.
