Several upcoming bloodmobiles slated for Richland County

The American Red Cross is asking the public to start the new season off with a lifesaving blood or platelet donation. Those who give this fall play an important role in keeping the blood supply high enough to help patients counting on blood products for care — especially ahead of the busy holiday season.

Book a time to give blood or platelets by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

There are a number of blood drives scheduled in Bellville, Butler, Mansfield and Shelby now through Oct. 14, including one from noon-6 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Richland Mall and another from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Oct.7 at the Area Agency on Aging, 2131 Park Avenue West.
