Blood drive locations; Red Cross needs blood before Labor Day

Stock image | St. George News

ST. GEORGE—The American Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types to give before the Labor Day holiday, even after many more donors stepped up to give following an urgent call issued in late July. Donors with types O-negative, B-negative and A-negative blood are especially needed.

Blood donations often decline during the summer months, particularly around summer holidays. With school starting back up and summer activities coming to an end, there is still time for eligible donors to make a difference in the lives of patients this summer.

To encourage donations over the Labor Day holiday weekend, all donors who come out to donate blood Aug. 30 through Sept. 1, will receive a Red Cross mason jar tumbler, while supplies last.

To learn more and make an appointment to donate blood, visit the Red Cross website or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
