St. Louis Cardinals Blood Drive Coming to Centralia This Week
Earlier this month the Red Cross issued an emergency call for more blood donations after donation numbers fell in June. Marion County Red Cross spokeswoman Mandy Wiedman said that particular types of blood were especially low.
"[We especially need] O negative, A negative, and B negative." Wiedman said, "You can really make a difference this summer by coming out and donating."
Wiedman says that donations are normally lower during the summer months while demand normally gets higher.
The blood drive on Wednesday at the Moose Family Center will be from eleven to six and the blood drive on Sunday at St. Mary's School will be from eight to two.
