Blood Drives

Winter storms and the flu don’t just mean a lot of people are missing work and school, it also means they can’t keep their American Red Cross blood and platelet donation appointments. The Red Cross is urging healthy donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve to help maintain the blood supply for patients in need. There are two blood drives scheduled in the area: Saturday, Feb. 17, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 205 W. Grove St. and Friday, Feb. 23, 2-7 p.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 505 Griffin Pond Road.

Visit or call (800) RED CROSS.
