This post comes to us from Laura Ellis

Summer doesn’t just mean hot weather, festivals on the Belvedere, and pork butt on a stick at the State Fair.  Unfortunately the summer months are also when the Red Cross experiences shortages of  all blood types.  But regardless of season, it’s about every two seconds that someone in the U.S. needs blood.

So next Thursday we’re rolling up our sleeves for our annual blood drive!  Join us – it’s the best way to save up to three lives in 45 minutes (that doesn’t involve running into and out of a burning building).

Appointments accepted but not necessary.  We’re at 619 S. 4th Street, next to the Louisville Palace.  Call our front desk at 502-814-6500 with questions or to make an appointment.
