With Thanksgiving and the holidays approaching, the American Red Cross urges donors to continue to make and keep appointments now and in the weeks ahead to help overcome the ongoing emergency blood shortage that has significantly impacted the nation’s blood supply.
In fact, the current blood supply is the lowest the Red Cross has seen this time of year in more than a decade.
To help with the ongoing low blood supply, Mt. Lake will host a Red Cross blood drive Nov. 11 from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Mt. Lake Community Center, 1027 2nd Ave.
For more on this blood drive and others in the area, see the story in the Nov. 3 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen.
