American Red Cross
American Red CrossAt the December 9, 2008 American Red Cross Blood Drive Amy Kemnitz and her daughter Briana were there to give blood. Briana is a student at Kingsford High School. Besides giving the gift of life with her mom, Briana brought many friends from Kingsford High School to donate. Generally anyone who is at least 17 years old, weighs at least 110 pounds and is in good health can donate whole blood every 56 days. There is no upper age limit for donations.

The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—down the street, across the country and around the world—in emergencies. The American Red Cross, a humanitarian organization led by volunteers, guided by its Congressional Chapter, provides relief to victims of disasters and helps people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. The American Red Cross is also a lifeline for deployed military members allowing them to communicate with loved ones back home during emergencies. We provide emergency communications and financial assistance to our returning troops and their families. We also work with our local VA facilities by providing volunteers or resources to meet the needs of local veterans. Your local Red Cross chapter is committed to meeting the humanitarian needs of the people in your area, be it in disaster preparedness, disaster relief, first aid, CPR or babysitter training.
