New Hampshire Blood Donation Opportunities Apr. 1-15, 2016

Give blood with the Red Cross during National Volunteer Month

MANCHESTER, NH (March 15, 2016) —The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give blood during National Volunteer Month this April and make a difference in the lives of patients in need.

More than 3 million generous people donated blood through the Red Cross last year. The Red Cross salutes these volunteer blood donors who helped fulfill its lifesaving mission and invites others to roll up a sleeve and join them.

Kathy Huey became a donor after encouragement from her husband, who has given more than 11 gallons of blood. “I love the fact that I’m helping others by giving a little bit of my time,” she said. “It’s simple and easy and helps save lives – what could be better?”

Volunteer donors are the only source of blood products for those in need of transfusions. Donors of all blood types are needed this spring.

To make an appointment to give blood, download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
