    1. Red Cross Blood Donation Opportunity – Faribault
      1:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Faribault
      8/18/2015: 1 p.m. – 7 p.m., The Crux Church, 112 Central Ave.
      8/23/2015: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., American Legion Post 43, 112 5th St. NE
      8/25/2015: 12 p.m. – 6 p.m., Keystone Senior Living, 828 – 1st St. NE
      8/28/2015: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, 900 NW 4th St.

       

      The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help prevent a blood shortage.

      Blood donations often decline in August as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up. On average, during the summer months, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed.

      Donations are needed now to help ensure blood is available for patients in need. Donors with types AB, O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially encouraged to donate. Plasma from type AB donors can be transfused to patients of any blood type, as can type O negative blood. Type B negative and A negative blood can be transfused to Rh-positive or negative patients. These are the most in demand blood types and are in constant need.

      To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
