Did you know that every two seconds, someone in America requires blood? People with cancer, trauma patients, premature babies, accident victims and more.
As a national network, the Red Cross has a responsibility to meet the demand for blood and help ensure it is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed, but we need your help. The coronavirus pandemic has caused a decline in blood units collected.
Casey and Melinda Donahew are partnering with the American Red Cross to help fill this gap. Please join us for the "Boots & Blood" drive hosted at Billy Bob's Club 81 on Saturday, August, 8th, 2020. We also encourage you to make a financial gift to ensure the American Red Cross can continue to provide blood when it is needed most.

As an added benefit, all blood, platelet and plasma donations will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service to blood donors.
Note: The Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, referred to as a diagnostic test, and a positive antibody test results do not confirm infection or immunity; a positive antibody test indicates potential exposure to the virus.
