Blood donations sought

Staff report

As summer approaches, the American Red Cross urges eligible blood donors to roll up a sleeve to help ensure a sufficient supply for patients in need.

Donors of all blood types are needed to help accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving cancer treatment.

As a thank you, those who donate May 26-30 will receive a Red Cross visor while supplies last.

Make an appointment by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-733-2767.

Donors can then also visit to enter to win one of three grand prize packages for four to Knott’s Berry Farm in California or Cedar Point in Sandusky.
