There is a dire need for blood in the country and there are American Red Cross blood drives planned for June in this area. Call or go online to make an appointment or find drives at a date and time you can give. There is blood drive in Sherburn from 1-7 p.m. June 6, at the Regional Worship Center just south of I-90, that has some openings available. There will be also be blood drives in Fairmont from June 7-9 at the Best Western (formerly Holiday Inn), and on June 20 in Truman. Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767), go online at www.redcrossblood.org or text BLOODAPP to 90999. Summer has traditionally been a slower time for donations. More than 41,000 blood donations are needed every day. Blood cannot be manufactured, it can only come from generous donors like you. An average body has 10 pints of blood and only one pint is taken
at a donation. It is safe and only takes about an hour. Get a Rapid Pass the day of donation and shorten the time of registration. Each donation can save up to three lives. Masks are now optional. Thank you for donating.
