Blood donations urged during Red Cross Month

An upcoming blood donation opportunity in West Seneca will be from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at St. David’s Episcopal Church, 3951 Seneca St.

March is Red Cross Month, and the American Red Cross reminds eligible blood donors that it doesn’t take a cape or superpowers to be a hero. By donating blood, donors can become a hero for patients in need.

Red Cross Month is dedicated to those who support the Red Cross mission by giving blood, volunteering their time, learning lifesaving skills or making a financial contribution.

The need for blood is constant. The Red Cross depends on blood donors in communities across the nation to collect enough blood to meet the needs of patients at approximately 2,600 hospitals nationwide. Donors with all blood types are needed, particularly those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.

To learn more about donating blood or to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit www.red crossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
