Red Cross Bloodmobile to make county stops Nov. 8-12

Veterans Day is Nov. 11, and the American Red Cross invites eligible donors to schedule an appointment to give blood locally in November in honor of those who have served the country in the U.S. armed forces.

Cottonwood County residents have opportunities to give on any of three dates:

•  Nov. 8 - 1:30-6:30 p.m., at Windom Community Center.
•  Nov. 12 - 1-7 p.m., at Westbrook Community Center.
•  Nov. 14 - 2-7 p.m., at Mt. Lake Community Center.

Blood donated through the Red Cross is distributed to about 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country for patients in need, including patients at many U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers. All blood types are currently needed, especially O negative, A negative and B negative.

Another way to support veterans, military families and active-duty service members at hospitals and installations around the world is by sending a holiday card through the annual Holiday Mail for Heroes program. Between now and early December, the Red Cross will collect the cards and distribute them. Learn more at redcross.org.
