Red Cross says donate blood for Volunteer Month

Rows of Bags of Blood


April is National Volunteer Month and Jennifer Collins with the American Red Cross has a recommendation for how to celebrate.

American Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative Jennifer Collins

Donating blood over an hour can save up to three lives. The Red Cross runs its blood drives and other activities largely with volunteers. She says making an appointment with the Red Cross to donate is a great method.

Collins added keeping the appointment is great for the volunteers helping the Red Cross to maximize their time and impact. To make a donation appointment, call 1-800-Red-Cross.
