November Blood Drives Planned

Presented By Rathkamp Financial

(Chillicothe) — You can give a hospital patient something to be extra thankful for in November. The Red Cross encourages donors to give something that means something this month by making a blood or platelet donation. Making a blood or platelet donation is a simple act of kindness with a huge ripple effect. Donate now to help meet the needs of hospital patients this holiday season. In most cases, there’s no blood donation deferral if you received a COVID-19 vaccine and you’re symptom-free and feeling well when you come to give.

[FOR DRIVES NOV. 24-28] Share the warmth! All who come to give Nov. 24-28 will receive an exclusive pair of Red Cross holiday socks, while supplies last.
