The American Red Cross is still experiencing a blood shortage and SE Minnesota is no exception.
Melanie Tschida, Executive Director, American Red Cross Southeast Minnesota, says they are always in need of blood donations.
Tschida says one easy way to schedule your blood donation ahead of time with the Red Cross Blood Donor APP. She says not only does the APP have a feature that allows you to follow where your donation is being used, it will find the closest blood drives regardless where you may be.
To download the free APP, go to www.redcrossblood.org.
To schedule a blood donation, go online to redcross.org and enter your zip code to see the closest blood drive or Red Cross location.
