Red Cross partners with Urban League to host sickle cell blood drive 

The Urban League of Greater Madison is partnering with the Red Cross to host a sickle cell blood drive on June 17. 

Many sickle cell patients depend on regular blood transfusions from African American blood donors to treat the disease’s effects. In order to boost the number of donors, the Red Cross is offering a free health screening to all who donate that day at the Urban League at 2222 S. Park St. 

Registration is available online.
