Red Cross Blood Drive set

Dear Editor,
Thank you for supporting blood drives with the American Red Cross this season.
Every two seconds someone in America will need blood. That is why supporting blood drives through the American Red Cross is vital - all year long. We need more blood donors constantly and during the summer months because some of our regular donors may be unable to donate and the need is constant.
Join your friends and family at the St. Rose Auditorium for the Great Bend Community Blood Drive, Monday, March 21st, from 11:15 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Please call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543) to schedule an appointment. Visit for more information about blood donation.
Since there is often an increased need for blood donors during this time, Great Bend plays an extremely important role in helping to ensure that blood is available to the over 100 hospitals served the American Red Cross Central Plains Region. I encourage you to spread the word about the need for donors, and please consider giving as often as possible.
Someone somewhere needs blood and you can help by giving.
Thank you,
Corry Herrman
Blood Drive Chair
