The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donors to help restock its shelves.  Severe winter weather across the nation forced blood drive cancellations and resulted in a shortfall of thousands of blood and platelet donations. Blood products are being delivered to hospitals almost as quickly as they come in. As winter ends and spring begins, you can help patients now by giving blood or platelets! Download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit red-cross-blood-dot-org or call 1-800-RED CROSS today to learn more and make an appointment.

The next blood drive in McPherson County is in Lindsborg March 23rd from 12:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Messiah Lutheran Church at 402 North 1st.
