The American Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during this coronavirus outbreak. Healthy individuals are needed to donate now to help patients counting on lifesaving blood. 

Please go to the redcrossblood.org site to find blood drive locations near you. Under "Make Your Appointment" enter your zip code and it will provide you with blood drives in your local area. You can register for an available time at the location you choose. 

Donating blood can help as many as three people per donation. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of others and in being a River, not a reservoir.
