March is American Red Cross (ARC) Month, and to pay tribute to ARC month, the Polk County ARC invites you to donate blood at one of two upcoming blood drives.
“Today’s economic conditions make it difficult to include charitable giving in our individual budgets, but a donation of blood offers every individual the chance to give the most precious gift there is – a gift that costs the donor no money, just an hour of time,” Red Cross officials said.
The two upcoming blood donation opportunities in Polk County are:
Monday, March 26
12:30 – 5 p.m.
Holy Cross Episcopal Church
150 Melrose Ave.

Thursday, April 5
2 – 6:30 p.m.
American Red Cross Chapter
231 Ward St.

To make an appointment to give blood, call 1-800-733-2767, visit www.redcrossblood.org or call the Polk County office at 828-894-2700.
