Volunteers are the backbone of the American Red Cross. Every year, more than 4 million volunteers donate about 6.5 million pints of blood through the Red Cross to help save lives. This April, celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, by donating blood.
A Blood Drive will be on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at South Tama High School, 1715 Harding St. in Tama.
In the hour it takes to give blood, donors can help save the lives of up to three patients. Make a difference; be a Red Cross blood donor and join a family of volunteers across the country in a lifesaving cause. To make an appointment or for more information, visit redcrossblood.org.
