We are inviting the community to schedule an appointment to donate blood and help save lives!” says Cheri Pastula, Manager of Community Relations for the Toledo MudHens.

While the need for blood is constant, particular times of year present unique challenges for blood collection.

“At any given moment, patients rely on life-saving blood products. The need is constant -- even in emergency situations,” said Tracy Duncan-Fox, Spokesperson for the Western Lake Erie Region of the Red Cross.  “The quickest help will come from local blood donors.”
