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.

Below are the blood drives that are open to the public in May.
