11 am - 5 pm JuneteenthICT Blood Drive sponsored by American Red Cross
Maintaining a diverse blood supply is a priority of the American Red Cross because it’s important to patients. For example, people who have sickle cell disease do better when treated with blood from a donor with a similar ethnic background. Some African Americans have rare blood types that are unique for the African American community, and that blood type may be the hope for survival of a patient. You can see more about this from Red Cross here.
