|School to host Bloodmobile, looking for donors|
Chase County Schools will hold an American Red Cross Bloodmobile on Tuesday, April 28. Donors will be accepted in the school gym between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Those wishing to donate blood may make an appointment by calling the school office at (308) 882-4228. Walk ins are always welcome and needed.
April is National Donate Life Month, making it a great time to continue donating blood, or making that very first blood donation.
In 2003, President George Bush proclaimed April as National Donate Life Month in an effort to raise awareness of the critical need for blood, organ, tissue and bone marrow donations.
“Nearly five million people need blood transfusions each year,” said Misti Loughran, Donor Recruitment Representative of Midwest Division Blood Services. “Giving blood during National Donate Life Month is an easy way to help ensure blood is available for these patients in need.”
