Red Cross Urging Blood Donations

7/16/11 – The Red Cross is making an urgent appeal for blood donations, saying the supply has reached “critically low” levels. Nationally, blood donations to the Red Cross were at their lowest levels for May and June since 1999. Donations normally drop during the summer because school is out, and people are either on vacation or busier than normal. The Red Cross is hosting a blood drive at the Beaver Dam High School next Tuesday from noon to 5pm.
