The American Red Cross is asking for more blood donors to help prevent a summer shortage.
Donors of all blood types are urged to schedule an appointment now, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative.
To encourage more people to make time to donate blood before and after Independence Day, all presenting blood donors from June 30 through July 7 will receive a commemorative Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.
Upcoming blood mobiles in Williams County include:
• Thursday, July 3 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Community Hospitals & Wellness Centers in Bryan.
• Thursday, July 10 from Noon until 5 p.m. at First Lutheran Church in Stryker.
• Saturday, July 12 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church in Bryan.
