Two convenient blood donation sites set for this week and next

This July, the American Red Cross and Wonder Woman 1984 are joining forces to save the day for patients in need of lifesaving blood transfusions. The Red Cross has an urgent need for blood donors this summer, as the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented supply challenges amid this uncertain environment.

Additionally, despite states lifting stay-at-home orders and reopening, many drives at businesses and community organizations continue to be cancelled as these locations remain closed or restrict the number of individuals on site.

As part of the partnership, the Red Cross is organizing an epic prop replica giveaway from the new Warner Bros. Pictures film Wonder Woman 1984, due to hit theaters nationwide on October 2, to thank those who roll up a sleeve and help patients battling illness and injury.

Those who present to donate July 1-31 will automatically be entered to win an authentic Wonder Woman 1984 movie prop replica package, which includes the Golden Lasso and a pair of Gauntlets, identical to Wonder Woman's.

Now is the time to help patients fight back. If you are feeling well, please make an appointment to give by using the Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.

Donation Blood in JC on July 10 and 13

• Friday, July 10, 2 to 7 p.m., Jennings County High School, 800 West Walnut Street; and

• Monday, July 13, 2020, 1 to 6 p.m., First United Methodist Church, 240 Poplar St.

Donors save up to 15 minutes at the blood drive by completing a RapidPass®. With this, donors complete the pre-donation reading and health history questions online the day of donation, from a mobile device or computer. To complete a pass follow instructions at RedCrossBlood. org/RapidPass.
