American Red Cross Blood Drives for August

The American Red Cross Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Blood Services Region will hold blood drives in cities and towns throughout the region. Donors are encouraged to give all summer long, but especially near key summer holidays when donations decline. From May 23 to Sept. 9, donors, recipients and blood drive coordinators will be asked to share their inspirational videos and personal messages about how their lives have been touched by blood donation. Call 1-800–REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit www.redcrossblood.org to schedule your blood donation appointment today.
