Summer holidays can be extra challenging to collect blood donations, as eligible donors go on vacations or fill their schedules with fun summer activities, leaving little time to give. As Independence Day approaches, the American Red Cross reminds eligible donors that patients cannot take a holiday from needing blood.
This summer, the Red Cross Summer of Stories campaign is helping raise awareness about the constant need for blood and encourage regular donations. As part of the campaign, all presenting donors between July 1 and 15 will be automatically entered to win one of five $3,000 American Express gift cards to help create their own summer memories.
Below is a list of upcoming blood donation opportunities through the next few weeks for the communities in your area. Your support would inform people how they can help save lives.
