Become a Blood Donor

Have you ever considered donating blood? This is a great time to do it, because there is a shortage of all blood types. Accidents and surgeries have not taken a holiday because of the pandemic. Claudia Bubeck donated for the first time at the start of the pandemic and has continued to donate. This month she got her Wonder Woman t-shirt as you can see in her picture.  To make an appointment, go to www.redcross.org and click on Give Blood. There are blood drives taking place throughout the Bay Area as well as blood centers in Oakland and Pleasant Hill. If you would like more information about blood donation or about being prepared for disaster, you can contact me at diana.graham@redcross.org.
