With summer right around the corner, many people are now planning their summer activities and vacations. After all, summer is a time to create lifelong memories. When eligible donors give blood with the American Red Cross, they can also give others time to make their own memories - watching fireworks, having a picnic, sleeping under the stars, taking a dip or rooting for the home team.
Blood donations often decline during the summer, when schools are out and vacations are in. The Red Cross encourages donors to make an appointment to give now to help ensure a stable supply in the weeks and months ahead, giving patients a chance to create a summer of stories.
Donors who present to give blood between May 23 and 31 in honor of Memorial Day could win one of fine $1000 American Express gift cards to create their own summer of stories. In addition, their donations will honor those who gave their life for our country and support those in need of care. The Red Cross serves about 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country, including many Veterans Affairs medical centers.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities in Cass County:
May 20 from 1:30-6:30pm at the Fire Hall, 601 N Fourth, Elmwood
May 20 from 11:30am-5:30pm, VFW Post 2543, Plattsmouth
