(WICHITA, Kan.) — Good news...The Red Cross says this drive exceeded its goal by 54 donors. Well done!
It's a chance to see animals and help people at the same time.
The Red Cross Thursday kicked off its 5th annual 'Red, White & You" blood drive.
It runs through Saturday at the Sedgwick County Zoo.
Red Cross chapters all over the country have seen a decrease in blood donors recently.
That has also been the case here in Kansas.
Terri Dunaway tells us, "The last couple of months we've really, really struggled collecting. We went way below our goal in May, over a thousand units low and June was worse. We collected about 15-hundred units under our goal".
You don't have to have an appointment, but Dunaway suggests you call 1-800-red-cross.
