Give The Gift of Life TODAY in Hannibal
The American Red Cross is putting out the call for blood donors to resupply the stock that has dwindled over the summer. You can help today, Monday Aug. 17, at a blood drive in Hannibal co-sponsored by Y101 Radio. You may also find out if you've been exposed to COVID-19 because the Red Cross is now testing for antibodies.
The Rock and Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive runs today from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. at the American Legion Post 55 Lounge at 3819 Route MM in Hannibal.
Giving blood is a faster process than it has ever been. Just make an appointment and you'll be issued a RapidPass which will save you up to 15 minutes in the process. It's not too late to make an appointment for today's drive. Just call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to redcrossblood.org.
Today's blood drive is co-sponsored by Y101 and The Hannibal High School Student Council. Donors will get a free t-shirt and a $5 Amazon gift card. Food will be provided.
As we reported last week, the Red Cross also has an emergency need for blood plasma.
