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.

Blood Shortage Brings Out Plea For Donors From Red Cross

Presented By Atomic Speedway

The American Red Cross is reporting a “severe blood shortage” and needs donors. Through July 31st, if you schedule yourself to donate, you will receive a gift card and become eligible to win free gasoline for one year. 

While donors go on summer vacations, many appointment slots are still empty. If you’re already on a trip, check out the chances to give blood near your vacation spot. It’ll only require about an hour of your time, but it could change someone’s life forever. 

To thank you for your blood donation through July 31st, the American Red Cross will present you with a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card*by email.

Your donation can help pump up the blood supply this month. And, when you come to give by July 31st, you will also be automatically entered for a chance to win gas for a year (a $5,000 value). There will be three winners, so hurry in to help end the severe shortage and get your shot at this prize.
