BURRELL TOWNSHIP — Local residents can donate blood to the American Red Cross at a blood drive today through 7 p.m. at WyoTech. The goal of this blood drive is 255 donations.
As part of the Red Cross Summer of Stories campaign to increase donations when they historically drop, all presenting donors at Red Cross blood drives across the country through July 15 could win one of five $3,000 American Express gift cards.
Donors are also encouraged to visit redcrossblood.org/summer to share their summer blood donation stories and watch videos of patients whose lives were touched by donors. In addition, those who come in to donate blood through the local Red Cross through July 7 will receive a Red Cross ball cap, while supplies last.
The Red Cross currently has a need for donors of all blood types, especially those who have O negative, A negative and B negative blood types.
