With summer in full swing, the American Red Cross reminds you that the need for blood does not take a summer break. This time of year, blood donations are especially important to maintain a stable supply. The Red Cross saw a steep drop in blood and platelet donations last month, and donors are asked to make an appointment today to prevent a blood shortage this summer. Please join us at the Beach Bash Summer Blood Drive Friday, July 29 in Champaign!
Friday, July 29 | 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Make an appointment by visiting redcrossblood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App. All presenting donors will receive a $10 e-gift card courtesy of Suburban Propane, a swag bag and a chance to win a $25 gas gift card.
