April is Red Cross National Volunteer Month


Submitted article



April is National Volunteer Month. The Red Cross depends on the generosity of volunteers to ensure blood products are available when patients need them.

Be a champion for patients this month. Help an accident victim, a patient with cancer or a new mother who needs blood during childbirth by making a donation appointment today. As a thank you, all who come to give blood April 1-18 will receive an exclusive Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

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 www.rcblood.org/camper
