Numerous Blood Drives Coming up in Cortland Area


The American Red Cross is celebrating National Volunteer Month towards the thousands of blood and platelet donors. The Red Cross says their volunteer donors are essential for hospital patients in need of transfusions.

The Red Cross is working to continue making appointments and keep the blood supply strong by giving a $10 e-gift card to a merchant of choice for those who donate between now and April 28th. Donors will also be entered for a chance to win one of two $7,000 gift cards.
