Opportunities to donate blood in February in Polk and Rutherford 


Blood cannot be manufactured or stockpiled and can only be made available through the kindness of volunteer donors. During this blood crisis, the Red Cross asks the country to roll up a sleeve to help ensure people in their communities receive the care they need. Make an appointment to give blood or platelets as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). The following are opportunities to donate blood in our area.
