On Friday January 31st the American Red Cross is Hosting a Blood Drive and hopes you can stop by to donate. Guardian Self Storage is co-hosting this event with the Red Cross. The Blood drive will be held at Guardian Self Storage Office in the rear of the building at 3 Neptune Drive in Poughkeepsie from 10 Am to 3 PM.

It is suggested you schedule an appointment which you can do by clicking here. The need for blood is on going all year long. Certain times of year are more urgent than others and right now the need for donations is urgent. According to a statistic share by this event, nationwide someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime. Volunteer donors are how we can address the need in our community.

Earlier this month we told you about blood shortages and how you could help. If you missed that information please read the story here. If you are sure you can donate or you have never donated and aren't sure how the process works the American Red Cross is happy to answer your questions. You can also contact the Blood Program Leader Jeff Haack at 845-462-8888

We encourage you to download the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store, Google Play or text BLOODAPP to 90999. Use the App to schedule appointments, view your blood type and results of your mini-physical, and track your donations.
