The Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia, in its response to a call for assistance from the American Red Cross, wishes to convey this important information to all members and companies who may wish to help.

The American Red Cross is in constant need for blood, platelets and AB Elite plasma.  As of April 12, nearly 19,000 Red Cross blood drives have been canceled across the country due to coronavirus concerns, resulting in some 530,000 fewer blood donations.  However, companies or groups of companies can schedule their own blood  drive by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or be making application on-line at this link: to set up an event.

IOGAWV encourages you to consider assisting the American Red Cross in this time of critical need.
