PADUCAH — There's always a need for blood donations, especially right now after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down several blood drives.

The American Red Cross wants you to know it's safe to donate during the pandemic.

You can find a blood drive where you live, or go to donation centers in Paducah, Cape Girardeau, and Carbondale.

All the centers have appointments available, even as early as today!
