HAPPENING NOW: Blood Drive at Loveless
In a statement released this morning, The American Red Cross said that hospital demand for blood products has increased by 30 percent as surgical procedures and patient treatments have resumed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Blood donors are essential to ensuring the continued health of their community by making sure hospitals have a readily available supply of blood products for patients,” said Chris Hrouda, president, American Red Cross Biomedical Services. “Blood cannot be stockpiled like other medical supplies and must be constantly replenished.”
Additional blood drives are scheduled for the Loveless Barn on June 25 and July 28.
