In June, the Red Cross collected about 12% fewer blood donations than needed to keep the blood supply stable. That’s one of the largest blood donation shortfalls in a single month in recent years. Donors of all blood types – especially types O negative and B negative – are needed.

The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive at Friendship Baptist Church, 1801 Patterson Rd, Prosser, WA on Friday, November 17th, 2017 from 12:00 noon to 5:00 PM.
