The Crossland family invites the community to donate blood in honor of Gary Crossland at a special American Red Cross blood drive.
Being a loyal blood donor to the Red Cross was a lifelong commitment for Crossland. He donated more than 35 gallons to help patients in need. His first donation was for a co-worker’s child who was diagnosed with cancer. Before his death in 2014, Crossland was diagnosed with cancer and received blood transfusions as a part of his recovery. He devoted his life to his family, friends and community and was awarded a plaque by the Red Cross for his donations.
To make it easy to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, at RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health, may be eligible to donate blood.
