The Red Cross blood supply is at its lowest level in more than 10 years. But you can help. Visit Columbia Mall on Friday, Jan. 28, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., during the American Red Cross Blood Drive being held there.  

The latest COVID-19 surge and severe winter weather present further risks to the blood supply. Many patients who postponed surgeries are now due to undergo their procedures, and many may require a blood transfusion.  In addition, there has already been a spate of serious or fatal car crashes this year. If more donors don’t come forward to give blood or platelets, some patients requiring a transfusion may not receive it, and may not make it. Your help is needed ASAP! Please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or click here to schedule an appointment.
