Join A Blood Drive at the Expo

Every unit donated at a blood drive can help save up to three lives.

The American Red Cross could not meet patient needs and touch all of those lives if it were not for blood donors. The upcoming blood drive collection goal on Sept. 19 is 40 appointmen­ts. Think about all of the lives that can be touched by signing up to donate. A typical donation takes less than one hour.
