Red Cross Staff Returns To Work, Time to Save Some Lives

Stu donates platelets at red cross donor center in Flint

The strike between blood services workers and the American Red Cross has been suspended, with the staff returning to work without a contract. Negotiations will continue between the union and the Red Cross to resolve the issues that led to the strike and a stoppage of blood collections for several weeks.

Now that the staff is back to work, they need donors! I am scheduled to give platelets this weekend, and hope that you can make an appointment to give blood or blood products soon. Summertime is always a time when blood supplies are low, so it is more important than ever to donate if you can.

To find a blood drive in your neighborhood or to make an appointment to donate blood or platelets, visit: www.redcrossblood.org or call toll-free 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)

Every blood donation can save as many as three lives, so you know you are doing something good. Give Blood.
