Donate Blood
Both Huntington Hospital and The American Red Cross are experiencing severe blood shortages due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this coronavirus outbreak.  Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood.

Donating blood is a safe process and people should not hesitate to give or receive blood.   Watch this video on the safety and need for blood donations.    Right now, eligible and healthy donors are strongly urged to make an appointment to give soon.
