The Red Cross sees about a 21 percent decline in blood and platelet donations during holiday weeks.
(Florence, Ky.) – The American Red Cross is urging individuals to give blood.
The Red Cross sees about a 21 percent decline in blood and platelet donations during holiday weeks, including Independence Day.
When blood donations drop, so does the blood supply, making it challenging to ensure blood is available when hospital need it.
An upcoming blood drive will take place on Tuesday, July 5 from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Vineyard Church, 7101 Pleasant Valley Road in Florence.
To schedule an appointment to donate, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit www.RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
As a thank-you for helping, all those who give between June 30 July 10 will receive an exclusive Red Cross recycled cotton tote bag, while supplies last.
