Wauneta blood drive celebrates Red Cross’ century of service
Help celebrate the American Red Cross’ century of service in Nebraska by donating at the Wauneta community blood drive Monday, June 12 from noon MT/1 p.m. CT to 6 p.m. MT/7 p.m. CT at the Wauneta Community Building, 325 North Tecumseh.
The first Nebraska Red Cross chapter was established in Omaha in 1917. With the support of volunteers and donors, the Red Cross has expanded across the state to help countless people, including those in need of blood.
“We could not help those who need blood without the generosity of donors in communities across Nebraska,” said Cathy Carman, Donor Recruitment account manager, Midwest Blood Services Region. “Patients depend on volunteer donors, and we’re grateful for everyone who takes the time to donate.”
All who come out to give at the Wauneta centennial blood drive will receive a Red Cross insulated travel mug and refreshments while supplies last.
