May is the American Red Cross Trauma Awareness Month.
The blood already on shelves is what helps in an emergency. The Red Cross depends on the generosity of volunteers to ensure blood products are available at a moment’s notice.
The Red Cross usually sees a dip in donations over summer when school is out and people are making time for fun and family. Come to give in May to help patients enjoy a summer with loved ones. All who come to give April 19-May 19 will be automatically entered for a chance to win a travel trailer camper that sleeps eight.
Plus, they’ll also receive a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice, all courtesy of Suburban Propane! Terms apply; see rcblood.org/camper. Those who come to give May 20-31 will get an exclusive 20 oz. Red Cross aluminum water bottle and sticker set, while supplies last.
A Red Cross blood drive will be held Monday, May 9 at Fayette County Community – Crossroads Christian Church from 1-7 p.m. To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS or visit RedCrossBlood.org, sponsor code: Fayette County
