It's the Rock & Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive! Give blood in Hannibal, here is how to schedule your appointment...

With so much of the focus medically in this country on the COVID-19 crisis, it can be easy to forget that there are still so many Americans who are fighting battles with cancer, injured in car accidents, or waiting for an organ transplant. So much of what can be done to save lives medically relies on having good usable blood in storage, and that's where we can help!

The American Red Cross is hosting the Rock & Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive at the American Legion Post 55 located at 3819 Highway MM in Hannibal, MO 63401 on Monday, August 17th from 11:30 am until 5:30 pm. This special blood drive event is sponsored in part by the Hannibal High School Student Council to help with their blood donation totals for the upcoming school year, the more blood they collect the more scholarship money they can earn.

There will be food and refreshments at this blood drive, and you are highly encouraged to make and appointment to give blood, to help with social distancing. to scheduled an appointment using click here!
