The American Red Cross has a severe winter blood shortage and has issued a call for blood and platelet donors to give now and help save patient lives. The winter months can be among the most challenging times of year for the American Red Cross to collect enough blood donations. Many donors are busy with holiday activities, and inclement weather can force the cancellation of blood drives. Additionally, some donors become temporarily ineligible because of seasonal illnesses.
To meet this need, Victory Place @ Coppell will be hosting a blood drive Friday, January 12 from 7:00am-1:00pm. To register to donate please go to www.redcrossblood.org and use the code “vpcoppell” to sign up for a time slot or click here. We will also be accepting walk-ins. We look forward to seeing you!
DON’T FORGET to complete a RapidPass on the day of donation; visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass for more information.
