Red Cross Fined Again by the FDA - $16 Million Dollars

This Father’s Day weekend, Council Bluffs residents can honor their fathers by giving the gift of life.
For their donation of blood, the Red Cross and the Council Bluffs Village Inn restaurants will provide all presenting donors with a free fruit pie on Saturday.
Blood drives will be held Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon at both Council Bluffs Village Inns located at 2935 W. Broadway and 1906 Rue St.
“Donating blood is one of the simplest things you can do to help save a patient’s life,” said Tricia Rubens, CEO of the local Red Cross Blood Services region.

To make an appointment to give blood, go online to redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE.
