OCEAN CITY -- Ocean City Yacht Club will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 7.

Ocean City Yacht Club and the American Red Cross invite all residents, groups and businesses to donate.

There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors and blood drive hosts to maintain a sufficient blood supply for weeks to come.

In times of crisis, the Red Cross is fortunate to witness the best of humanity as people roll up a sleeve to help those in need.  American Red Cross will ensure proper COVID 19 protocols for the safety of the donors.

Appointments are preferred, but not required. To make an appointment, contact the Red Cross at 800-RED CROSS or sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org - Sponsor Code OC YACHT CLUB
