Red Cross

(Cold Spring MN-) American Red Cross is experiencing an emergency blood and platelet shortage. A sharp drop in blood donor turnout has contributed to the lowest post-summer blood inventory level in six years, and donors of all blood types – especially type O – and platelet donors are urged to make an appointment to give now and in the weeks ahead to help meet the needs of patients this fall.

As a thank-you, all those come to donate in October will receive a link by email to claim a free Zaxby’s® Signature Sandwich reward or get a $5 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice.**

There's a blood drive in Cold Spring today from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m., Rocori High School, Fifth Ave. N
