Summer is the season we wait for. It's the season full of fun in the sun.. Summer offers more than 100 days to make a difference. Thank you for please clearing your calendar On July 7th for what's most important to help save lives by donating at our American Red Cross Blood drive from 10 to 5 in the Fitness Center. During the summer months of June, July and August, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive. This could add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations. If at least two more donors gave blood at every Red Cross blood drive this summer, above what's expected, patients would be better assured of having lifesaving blood products readily available. Call 1-800-REDCROSS TO SET UP YOUR APPOINTMENT ON JULY 7TH
