We've got you protected...help us protect the blood supply

May 1, 2008

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of summer for many - with weekends at the lake, cookouts with friends and family, and plans for vacation.

As summer approaches and regular blood donors start to take vacations and enjoy summer activities, the blood supply typically falls below minimum levels.

You can help us protect the blood supply in our community and across the nation by donating blood around the Memorial Day holiday, and then make plans to give again in 56 days.

If you visit a blood drive or donor center from May 23-29, you will receive an American Red Cross umbrella as our thank you to people, like you, who make time to give blood.

To find a blood drive near you, click on the Blood Drives tab at the top of this page.
