Central Plains RED CROSS Holding Blood Drive in Hanover Today from Noon to 6:00 p.m.

By Ryan Duey

As summer approaches, the American Red Cross reminds eligible donors to keep the blood supply stable by racing to give blood in the weeks to come. Donors of all blood types – especially type O blood donors – are crucial to keeping shelves fully stocked with blood products throughout the month.

Right now, there’s no letting off the gas when it comes to lifesaving care. With no substitute for blood and no way to manufacture it, volunteer donors are essential for hospital patients who count on transfusions every single day.

The Central Plains Region of the American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on Wednesday, May 22nd from Noon to 6 pm at the American Legion, located at 309 North Railroad Street in Hanover.

Book a time to give lifesaving blood now by visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS, or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App.
