Red Cross Scheduling Special Blood Drives

(Farmington) The American Red Cross is really feeling the pinch because of the coronavirus. Joe Zydlow with the Red Cross says the blood donation numbers over the last month are staggering.

In an attempt to make up for those losses, Zydlow says they are trying to set up a series of blood drives at the same location, while still practicing social distancing. He says two churches in St. Francois County will be participating, starting next week.
