The American Red Cross will support 9/11 Day by offering the community an opportunity to honor those who lost their lives and those who responded following the events of Sept. 11. Interested individuals can volunteer or donate blood or platelets with the Red Cross and help ensure blood is available for patients in need.
9/11 Day was launched in 2002 as an annual day of service to honor the victims and heroes of Sept. 11. Since then, the observance has evolved into the largest annual day of charitable engagement in the U.S. and was designated as a National Day of Service and Remembrance by the U.S. Congress in 2009.
Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood; regular donations are needed. Blood and platelet donors of all types are urged to give.
The following local blood donation opportunities will take place:
- 2-7 p.m. Sept. 8, Franklin Elks, 1077 Pond St., Franklin.
