Blood donors are needed as the Red Cross has announced a national blood crisis.
Manchester Blood Drive Coordinator Marcia Burkle says the Red Cross announced last week a dire situation that may put patients in need of blood transfusions at risk.
Burkle encourages you to consider donating if you never have before.
A Red Cross blood drive will be held in Manchester this Wednesday from 11 am to 5:30 pm at the Delaware County Community Center, as well as next Monday, January 24th from 10:15 to 3 at Regional Medical Center. And Burkle says if you donate, you’ve got a chance to win tickets to the Super Bowl, as well as other prizes.
Appointments are required – you can schedule your appointment at redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
