The American Red Cross is urging people to donate blood this month. With no substitute for blood and no way to manufacture it, volunteer donors are essential for hospital patients in need of transfusions. During National Volunteer Month this April, the American Red Cross is celebrating the blood donors who help fulfill its lifesaving mission and urging healthy individuals to join them in giving. Here are some upcoming blood donation opportunities in our area:
In Ark City, you can donate at Ark City High School, on April 30th, from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
In Burden, you can donate at United Methodist Church, on April 27th, from noon until 6 p.m.
In Winfield, you can donate at Cornerstone Bible Fellowship Church, on April 22nd, from noon until 6 p.m.
