American Red Cross needs more blood donations

Local - 9/6/2013 6:02 PM by Rebecca Turco

BECKLEY - American Red Cross officials are asking folks to roll up their sleeves and donate blood.

Donor Recruitment Representative Scott Hill said their blood supply usually suffers around this time every year because not as many people donate during the summer.

Hill asked the community to step up and donate to help increase the Red Cross’s blood supply. “We need all the help we can get right now because this summer was really rough here at the Red Cross.”

The Beckley Donor Center hosts blood drives every Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. Walk-ins are welcomed.

You can donate blood every 56 days. For more information on the criteria for donating blood, click here
