The American Red Cross is still in critical need of blood donations. In an effort to increase the supplies, the Town has partnered with the Red Cross and the Indian Trail VFW to host a blood drive on Thursday, June 25, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the VFW (100 VFW Lane). To schedule an appointment, visit www.redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code TownOfIT.
According to the Red Cross, blood donation is a safe process, and people should not hesitate to give and receive blood if they are able. At each blood drive, Red Cross employees follow thorough safety protocols. In addition to their standard procedures, they have established enhanced safety features, including:
- Pre‐Donation Donor Temperature Screening before entering the blood drive
- Enhanced Disinfecting
- Social Distancing
- Hand Sanitizer
- All staff members will have a temperature check before presenting to work
- Increased Educational Materials
- Donor educational materials on COVID‐19
If you are in good health, please consider donating.
We would like to thank the American Red Cross for their partnership and the VFW for generously offering to host the event.
