Give blood, save lives, feel happy and repeat as often as possible
The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive from 1 to 6 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 6) at First United Methodist Church, 1205 Deborah Road.
According to a press release from the national organization, as flu season kicks into gear healthy individuals of all blood types are needed to donate blood and platelets for patients in need.
Luckily, the release said, having had a flu shot doesn't impede a person's ability to donate blood as long as the donor is symptom- and fever-free.
In order to participate, potential donors must display a ARC blood donor card, driver's license or two other forms of identification at check-in. Individuals must a minimum of 17 years old (16 with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health.
