Red Cross: Urgent Need for Assistance

Published: April 2, 2020

In a letter to the North American Building Trades, the National Red Cross from across North America are in urgent need of blood and plasma.  According to the letter: “At this moment, the Red Cross is having a difficult time in finding places to set up and perform collections as many of their traditional partners are unable or unwilling to do so. We would request that you discuss this with your affiliates and ask them to strongly consider working with the Red Cross by making your union halls and training facilities available as collection sites, and we would further encourage your rank and file to donate if they are able.”
