CIRCLEVILLE — The American Red Cross is urging donors who are healthy and feeling well to make an appointment to give blood to maintain the blood supply for patients who rely on lifesaving transfusions.

More blood donors are needed now to ensure hospitals have the blood needed to save lives. The Red Cross is currently testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies, providing donors insight into whether they have been exposed to this coronavirus.

All presenting donors in August will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip for four to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm. There aren’t enough people donating blood to help people in need. Do you know someone who has never donated before? Please encourage them to make an appointment with you. Below are the blood drives that are open to the public in August.
