Donors will receive a $20 eGift card
The Blood Connection will be at Union’s Walmart accepting blood donations on Thursday, December 9, from 2-6 p.m. The community continues to experience a severe blood shortage that could last several weeks if immediate action isn’t taken. The Blood Connection’s hospital partners are reporting a higher need for blood as the number of previously deferred surgeries increases and trauma cases climb to historical highs. In addition, blood donation levels have remained low throughout the pandemic, making the problem greater. The Blood Connection notes that the community’s blood supply is only as strong as the community who supports it. Make plans to donate blood Thursday from 2-6 at Walmart. All donors will receive a $20 eGift card.
