â€œWe are experiencing a blood shortage in northeast Ohio,â€ said Volunteer Coordinator Marcy Todd. â€œAt any point in time, it may be one of your family members who is in need of blood. At ACH, we want to be ready to respond to any emergency. Our monthly blood drives help to make a quick response possible.â€
Todd said that the she encourages anyone who has not donated since July 7, 2006, to schedule an appointment today.
â€œWe certainly want to encourage individuals who have never donated to become part of our team,â€ she said.
Any area resident wishing to donate at the drive is asked to contact the Volunteer Department at ACH at 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821. The staff will assist the donor in scheduling an appointment.
