American Red Cross blood drive will be held 12:30-6:30

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.
