Blood donations urgently needed in the final weeks of summer
RIVER FALLS – The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic summer blood shortage with four upcoming blood drives in Pierce County.
Four blood drives will take place in Pierce County later this month. They are in Ellsworth on Aug. 21 from noon to 6 p.m. at Zion Covenant Church, 210 N. Beluah St.; Aug. 31 in Elmwood at the Elmwood Auditorium at 323 W. Winter Ave. from noon until 6 p.m.; Aug. 21 in Prescott from 1-6 p.m. at Joy Lutheran Church at 1435 St. Croix St. and Aug. 23 in River Falls at River Falls Public Library, 140 Union St. from noon until 6 p.m.

To fully meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks, donations are urgently needed from new and current donors. Those who donated blood earlier this summer may be eligible to donate again. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days, and Power Red cells can be donated every 112 days. As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through Aug. 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard™.*
