Washington County’s American Red Cross spreads the gift of life by donations and other aid.
For some time, WDVM 25 and the American Red Cross have partnered in sharing news about blood shortages, emergency relief and other assistance to those in need.
“Having a partner like WDVM is fantastic because in today’s day and age it’s really important to communicate and with an organization like ours to be able to pull in volunteers is a good thing,” said Eric Anderson, executive director of the Washington County Branch.
Anderson noted the responsibility that comes with getting the word out that has the potential to aid those who have nowhere else to go.
WDVM has covered several American Red Cross stories which strengthens the ties between the community and blood bank.
During a donation shortage at American Red Cross, WDVM has helped get the word out.
