Emergency blood drive

The American Red Cross has an emergency need for blood donations, with blood supplies being distributed to hospitals as fast as it is donated. Blood of all types is needed to help avoid summer shortages and ensure patients get the treatment they need.

Red Cross will be collecting blood donations at the Berkeley Springs American Legion on Thursday, July 27, 1:30-7 p.m. Donors can save time by using redcross blood.org/Rapid Pass to begin their health history. New prospective donors may call 1-800-733-2767 for answers to donor eligibility questions or to make an appointment.

A free Red Cross flashlight is being offered as an incentive, while supplies last.
