Looking for a small way to help others during the coronavirus crisis? The American Red Cross has an ongoing critical need for blood donations during the pandemic to help those affected, as well as other patients. Although many blood drives in Charleston and across the country are being cancelled, the Red Cross urges healthy individuals to schedule an appointment in their area to give lifesaving blood, platelets or AB Elite plasma. As always, the organization follows “the highest standards of safety and infection control,” and will protect all volunteers from any possible exposure to infection.
In their own words, the Red Cross has confirmed that donating blood is “one of the most important things you can do to ensure we don’t have another health care crisis on top of coronavirus,” so click here to see where you can go to help.
