Arc of Genesee Orleans Hosts Blood Drive to Assist with Severe Winter Blood Shortage

Arc of Genesee Orleans Hosts Blood Drive

Blood Drive to Benefit
American Red Cross



There's no way to say this gently: this is an emergency.  

Hectic holiday schedules for many regular blood donors contributed to about 37,000 fewer donations in November and December. Snowstorms and severe weather have also impacted supplies. More than 90 blood drives were forced to cancel in December, resulting in thousands of uncollected donations. The American Red Cross is announcing this crisis on national news and media outlets, calling for donors across the U.S. to help.

The most vulnerable and critical patients across the U.S. may face delays in critical medical care unless generous donors like you can help make up for the gap.

Will you commit to make a donation?  Please use the link below to schedule your appointment.  Walk-ins are also welcome!!

The Arc of Genesee Orleans will be hosting a Red Cross Blood Drive on Friday, January 27th.

The Blood Drive will be held in the 2nd floor conference room at the Arnold Gregory complex, 243 South Main Street, Albion, from 10 am to 2 pm.
