The American Red Cross is asking eligible donors to help hospital patients by giving one last gift – a blood or platelet donation. It’s a gift that doesn’t cost a thing and can help save lives. You can schedule an appointment to give blood using the Blood Donor App, by visiting redcrossblood.org or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
Literacy Volunteers of Rochester is seeking tutors to help individuals or small groups of adults with reading and writing English. Once trained, tutors commit to work with an adult student for up to two hours each week for one year. Tutoring takes place in a public space, such as a library, church, school, or community center. Literacy Navigators may volunteer for one 2 to 3 hour shift/month, and ACCESS and Family Literacy Volunteers volunteer seasonally when classes are scheduled.

The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood August 1-15 to help meet the constant need this summer for blood products by patients. Summer is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet the needs of hospital patients. With more summer days ahead, every blood donation is important in helping ensure blood is available for patients in need, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those who need it. Donors of all blood types – especially those with types AB, O negative, A negative and B negative – are needed to help ensure blood products are available to hospital patients this summer.
