The Red Cross will host a blood drive Monday, March 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Hillcrest Home. Appointments can be made by visiting www.redcrossblood.org, by calling 479-263-4323 or via the Blood Donors app.
Blood donations remain essential to the health of communities, and the Red Cross is grateful for the ongoing support of blood donors and blood drive hosts. A year ago, many things in the world paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the need for blood never stopped. For patients in the emergency room, fighting cancer or facing a life-threatening illness, help can’t wait. Blood donation is essential. In thanks for being a vital part of the Red Cross mission, all who come to give blood March 15 through March 26 will receive a free American Red Cross T-Shirt. All donors will receive FREE COVID Antibody testing.
