Red Cross blood drives

Blood drive schedule
The American Red Cross has issued an urgent call for blood donors in our area. The blood supply has dropped critically low. The need for blood is constant and only volunteer blood donors can meet that need.
You can help by giving blood at one of the following sites. Phone numbers are provided for appointments.
All donors may register to win one of three $1,000 gas cards.
Also, 16-year-olds can donate blood, but they must have a parent or legal guardian with them and photo ID.
