EVERY DAY, PATIENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY RELY ON BLOOD AND PLATELETS DONATED THROUGH THE AMERICAN RED CROSS.  WHILE THE NEED IS ONGOING, THE SUPPLY ISN'T - ESPECIALLY AROUND THE HOLIDAYS, WHEN REGULAR DONORS TRAVEL AND SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND MAY FORGET TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT.

THE ONLY WAY TO PROVIDE LIFESAVING BLOOD AND PLATELETS FOR PATIENTS IN NEED IS THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF DONORS.  DONORS CAN HELP THE RED CROSS MAINTAIN A STABLE BLOOD SUPPLY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON BY MAKING AN APPOINTMENT TO DONATE.

DECEMBER 10 FROM 1-7PM AT TOWN HALL, 623 HOUSE ST IN AVOCA
