Did you know someone in the US needs blood every two seconds? Register today for a mobile Blood Drive with the American Red Cross (redcross.org) March 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sarpy Chamber at rcblood.org/4b0Ysi6. Donors will receive a $10 e-gift card to a pet supply merchant of choice! Give blood, treat your pet and make a paw-sitive impact this spring. PLUS, automatically be entered for a chance to win $3,000 gift card (five winners)!

Unlike many medical treatments where supplies can be stockpiled or manufactured, blood is a unique resource that can only be sourced from voluntary blood donors. This inherent limitation makes regular blood donations essential to maintaining an adequate and consistent blood supply for various medical needs.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides comfort to victims of disasters; supplies about 40% of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; distributes international humanitarian aid; and supports Veterans, military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to deliver its mission. For more information, please visit redcross.org.
