The American Red Cross in NE Ohio needs approximately 500 donations daily to meet the demand of patients in need. Just 1 pint from a standard, whole blood donation will help up to 3 people in need! But the challenge is that only 3% of the population donates on a regular basis…that’s where you can help. To schedule your lifesaving appointment, please go to RedCrossBlood.org and at the top right of the homepage type in your Zip Code for a display of blood drives near you. Or you may call 1-800 RED CROSS for scheduling assistance.
