Blood donation opportunity this week
American Red Cross blood drive will be held noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Winnebago Community Center, 140 Main St. in Winnebago. The Red Cross is urging healthy, eligible individuals to give blood to help prevent blood shortages that could result from lower donor participation. Donors of all blood types are encouraged to give blood. Extra sanitary precautions are used and it is safe to give. Masks are a good idea as well. To make an appointment or to donate blood, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), visit RedCrossBlood.org or download the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

Fax to (507) 235-3718 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Announcements also can be submitted via our virtual newsroom: www.fairmontsentinel.com.
