Furniture Mart USA partners with American Red Cross to fight nationwide blood shortage

The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive on Friday, December 1st, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Ashley Outlet store in Duluth (801 W. Central Entrance). Donors can schedule an appointment by going to and enter “FM”. People can also call to make an appointment at 1-800-RED-CROSS.

According to the American Red Cross, there is a nationwide blood shortage and in early August, the blood supply dropped around 25%. Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.

Those who give blood during this event will receive a $10 Amazon giftcard by email and will have the opportunity to win a $50 Amazon giftcard.

If you can’t donate, but still want to help, the Red Cross wants you to consider joining their volunteer team or help spread the word by promoting their blood drives on social media.

Furniture Mart in Duluth is a new sponsor for this blood drive and is proud to partner with the American Red Cross.
