Red Cross Urges Donations, Announces NWI Blood Drives

The American Red Cross continues to urge able region residents to donate blood amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming holiday season. The pandemic, combined with traditional slumps in blood donations between Thanksgiving and New Year’s make it even more important for eligible donors to make an appointment with the Red Cross or attend a local blood drive. You can make an appointment by downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. To thank donors for making an appointment around the Thanksgiving holiday, donors will receive an exclusive Red Cross long-sleeved t-shirt, while supplies last, between November 25th and November 28th. For a complete list of blood drives around The Region, you can visit our website.
