August a busy time for area bloodmobiles
Outside of Imperial, several area communities will be hosting bloodmobiles in August.
The American Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types to give before the Labor Day holiday, even after many more donors stepped up to give following an urgent call issued in late July.
Donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially needed.
Blood donations often decline during the summer months, particularly around summer holidays. With school starting back up and summer activities coming to an end, there is still time for eligible donors to make a difference in the lives of patients.
To learn more and make an appointment to donate blood, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
Here is a list of area blood donation sites, listed by the county. Times listed are local to that community.
