There’s An Emergency Need for Blood and Platelet Donors

Hospital news | Monday, September 16, 2019

Prairie du Chien, WI – There is an urgent need for blood donations as Hurricane Dorian has forced blood drive cancellations in impacted areas. A blood or financial donation enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to, and help people recover from disaster.

Partners of Crossing Rivers Health are hosting a blood drive on Friday, September 20 from 12 – 5 pm in the George Family Education Center at Crossing Rivers Health. Make an appointment to give blood or platelets by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Donor support can help ensure that blood products are there for trauma victims, premature babies, patients going through cancer treatment and others who rely on the generosity of volunteer donors.

Don’t wait. Donate.
