Letter: Help others by giving blood on Aug. 6
To the Editor:
The next Plover/Whiting Red Cross blood drive takes place on Monday, August 6, from 1:00 – 6:00 P.M. at the Plover Municipal Building. We invite you to join us as BMO Harris Bank sponsors the food for this blood drive.
The American Red Cross is facing an emergency blood shortage and has issued an urgent call for all blood types, especially those with type O blood. Please encourage your family members, friends and co-workers to donate blood.
Schedule an appointment today by using the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors can save up to 15 minutes by using RapidPass to complete the pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online. For more information, visit RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass. All donors who come to give blood will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, as a thank you from the Red Cross.
After your donation, you are invited to have a BBQ or ham salad sandwich, made and served by our volunteers.
Please give blood Monday, the 6th.
