Red Cross Encouraging Donations Now

(Undated) – The American Red Cross in encourage eligible donors to donate now. They say they see a pretty big decline, nearly twenty-one percent, in blood and platelet donations during holiday weeks, like the upcoming July 4th holiday. When blood donations drop, so does the availability of blood products for hospital patients. Donors can help ensure blood is ready when needed by making an appointment to give in the coming weeks. You can donate today in Flat Rock at the community center from 1 pm-5 pm. The Red Cross will be at the Robinson Community Center Friday from 1 pm-5 pm and again on July 1st also 1 pm-5 pm.
