The American Red Cross will be in Waterbury this week and it could really use your help.

The drive will be held Saturday, Aug. 24, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Ben & Jerry’s factory in Waterbury Center.

The Red Cross is currently out on an emergency appeal for all blood types, and has less than a two-day supply of O-type blood.

All donors will receive a free cone and an Amazon e-gift card.

As always walk-ins are welcome but appointments are strongly suggested. For an appointment go online to redcrossblood.org enter in the keyword “icecream.”
