Red Cross blood drive to be Aug. 8

The next American Red Cross blood drive here will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8, at the First Baptist Church, 119 Second St. 

The Red Cross announced recently that the organization is currently enduring an emergency blood shortage – in part due to regular donors’ absence on vacations when blood drives in their area are scheduled. As an incentive, the Red Cross is offering donors a $5 Amazon gift card now through Aug. 30.

Walk-in donors are always welcome, but to save time, participants may schedule an appointment by visiting, clicking on the “find a drive” link and then entering code MSNGN. The blood drive canteen will be provided by St. William’s Catholic Church, coordinated by Aileen Cochrane.
