American Red Cross Blood Drive

Blood Donors Urgently Needed!

Apex UMC will host its next Blood Drive on October 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the CLC Gym.

The American Red Cross is experiencing a severe national blood shortage. Back-to-school season, summer travel and an active hurricane season have hindered blood donations, resulting in a shortfall of about 30,000 blood donations in August alone. Right now, blood distributions to hospitals are outpacing the number of blood donations coming in. The Red Cross is working with hospitals around the clock to meet the blood needs of patients – but can’t do it alone. The American Red Cross needs your help! The RC Blood Center at 3700 Regency Parkway is open six days per week. Please don’t forget your AUMC Red Cross Blood Drive Team is scheduled to host another blood drive on Saturday, October 28th from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Please log onto and locate the AUMC drive on October 28th. Thank you so much for your continued support!

You are saving lives. Thank you. Jim Ahler,
