December blood drive schedule announced

During the holiday season, there’s an increase in the need for blood donations. There are more traffic accidents because many are traveling to spend time with their families, and the thousands of patients who depend on blood for their survival still need our help.
Please give the most precious gift you can give to a patient … LIFE!
All donors are automatically entered to win two Delta Airline tickets.
For a 16-year-old to donate blood, he or she must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and have a photo ID.
