The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donations to prevent another blood shortage as hospitals resume surgical procedures and patient treatments that were temporarily paused earlier this spring in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
American Red Cross
Anytime Fitness at 152 Chase Avenue in Waterbury, in the Stop ‘n Shop/Target retail shopping Plaza, will host a Blood Drive in cooperation with the American Red Cross on Friday, April 24, between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. As a thank you for giving blood, donors will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card* via email from the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross is facing an emergency need for blood donors and is urging eligible donors of all types to give now and help avoid delays in lifesaving medical care for patients this summer. Blood donations are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in. More donations are needed now to help replenish the blood supply.
