Schedule of American Red Cross blood drives in Kent and Ottawa Counties

The American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region is pleased to announce that employees represented by Teamsters Local 580 and OPEIU Local 459 returned to work on June 21 and have been busy preparing to get the Region running at full capacity again.

Beginning July 6, the Great Lakes Region will hold regularly-scheduled blood drives, giving loyal Red Cross blood donors an opportunity to donate blood.  Nationally, the American Red Cross issued an emergency need for blood donations, encouraging all eligible donors to make an appointment to donate blood.

Unfortunately, patients don’t get a holiday from needing blood products. The need is constant. Approximately every two seconds, a patient in the United States needs a blood transfusion. Blood and platelets are needed for many different kinds of patients. They include accident and burn victims, heart surgery patients, organ transplant patients, premature babies – when there are complications during childbirth – and for patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease.

Make donating blood a part of your summer plans by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visiting redcrossblood.org.
