GREENSBORO, NC -- The Greensboro Science Center (GSC) has announced that it will partner with American Red Cross to host a blood drive, which will take place Mon., Oct. 11, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Jessica Gouge, the GSC's Events Manager, shared, "As we continue to tackle a global pandemic, in addition to assisting all of those who need non Covid-related care, there is a blood shortage in the United States. According to the American Red Cross, the number of blood donors has dropped nearly 10% recently, and the demand for donated blood is outpacing the supply. Giving blood right now is more important than ever!"
With respect to the current Covid-19 situation, the American Red Cross will be taking all necessary safety precautions, including temperature checks and health screenings.
"It's important for organizations like the GSC to show their support for critical community needs, like blood drives, that affect so many. Not only do we work hard to fill as many donation spots as possible, but many of our own staff members make time to donate and show support for the community they are a part of," Gouge added.
