ANNA, Ill. (WSIL) – If you’re bleeding red for the St. Louis Cardinals, you might want to support their upcoming blood drives.
The organization organized several blood drives on Friday, in collaboration with the American Red Cross.
Organizers said the Cardinals blood drive always takes place at a critical time of the year, when the need for blood is high. They say last year’s blood drive faced several challenges due to COVID-19 and over the past month they have seen fewer donors participate.
There are still plenty of opportunities to donate blood and receive a limited edition St. Louis Cardinals Blood Drive T-shirt, while supplies last.
You can give on Friday June 18 until 6 p.m. at different places:
- Osage Community Center, 1625 N. Kingshighway, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701
- Sikeston Elks Lodge # 2319, 349 Dona, Sikeston, MO 63801
- Perryville Elks Lodge, 921 N. Perryville, Perryville, MO 63775
- Main Street Center, 400 S. Main, Anna, IL 62906
