Red Cross Sets August Blood Drive Dates for Ross/Fayette Counties

Article Presented By Scioto Valley Dumpsters, LTD

(Red Cross) – It’s not too late to be a part of something big this summer. As we flip the calendar to August, there’s no time to wait − patients are trusting blood donors to ensure lifesaving care is ready as soon as it’s needed. All who come to give in August will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win gas for a year (a $6,000 value)! Three lucky winners will be selected. PLUS, all donors will receive a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice. Terms apply at www.RedCrossBlood.org/GasForAYear Don’t delay! Book a donation appointment and help keep the blood supply stable before fall routines may make it tougher to schedule time to give.

May Blood Drives For Trauma Awareness Month

Presented By Rathkamp Financial

The month of May is another big opportunity for people in the community to give the Gift of Life, with the knowledge that blood already on shelves is what helps in an emergency.

The Red Cross depends on the generosity of volunteers to ensure blood products are available at a moment’s notice. The Red Cross usually sees a dip in donations over summer when school is out and people are making time for fun and family.

Special prizes are available to those donating blood now through the month of May.
