Red Cross Blood Donations

While donors across the country have rolled up a sleeve to give this summer, the need for blood and platelets remains crucial for patients relying on lifesaving transfusions. The American Red Cross continues to experience a severe blood shortage and donors of all blood types – especially type O and those giving platelets – are urged to make an appointment to give now.  

To thank donors who help refuel the blood and platelet supply this month, all who come to give July 7-31 will receive a $10 Gift Card via email and will also receive automatic entry for a chance to win gas for a year (a $5,000 value). More information and details are available at Also, all those who come to donate throughout the entire month of July will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm.
