Alton Memorial Hospital hosts Red Cross Blood Drive on Dec. 15

All donors will receive a $10 Amazon e-Gift Card

The next American Red Cross blood drive at Alton Memorial Hospital will be from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15, in the AMH café meeting rooms located on the hospital’s main campus.

To register, go to https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/drive-results?zipSponsor=AltonMemorial  or contact Dave Whaley in AMH Marketing & Communications at (618) 433-7947, david.whaley@bjc.org.

The Red Cross currently has about four days’ supply of most blood products. However, the Red Cross strives to keep a five-day supply of all blood types on hand at all times to meet daily patient needs and be prepared for emergencies requiring significant volumes of donated blood products. More donors are needed to help ensure the Red Cross can meet the needs of all patients, including in times of emergency. The need for lifesaving blood transfusions never takes a break. It’s important to have blood ready to go when every second counts.

The American Red Cross is thanking all who present with a $10 Amazon e-gift card.
