Asks for Blood Donations Around the Holiday
The Fourth of July holiday will soon be here and many of us will enjoy the outdoors, watch fireworks or host a family picnic. The American Red Cross wants everyone to enjoy their holiday and offers safety steps they can follow.
“The Independence Day Holiday is a great time for summer fun and we want to make sure everyone stays safe during their celebration,” said Lyn Hruska, Chief Executive Officer, American Red Cross Central and Southern Illinois Region. “It’s also a time when the number of people giving blood drops, but the need for blood donations continues. We are also asking that everyone consider giving blood over the holiday.”
HAVE A SAFE FOURTH OF JULY
