Several Red Cross blood drives will be coming up over the next few weeks at Center Lake Pavilion.

Red Cross officials are stating that the need for blood donations have been very high, especially with the coronavirus pandemic impacting drives across the nation, which has attributed to less donations.

Along with giving blood, the Red Cross is also testing for COVID-19 antibodies. The next drive coming up is on Wednesday, July 22nd from 10 AM until 4 PM. Donors to that one and the one on Wednesday, August 5th will also get a ticket to Cedar Point Amusement Park while supplies last.

Donors are asked to wear a mask when attending. You can register or find a blood drive here.
