Blood drive set next week at local church
The Red Cross staff will be at Christ United Methodist Church, 112 Hall St., on Monday from noon-6 p.m. and Tuesday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
All blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative. Blood is a perishable product that must be constantly replenished and can only come from volunteer donors.
Donors can save about 15 minutes by using RapidPass the morning of the drive. RapidPass asks for some initial information and then has donors read through pre-donation material and answer health history questions. Donors then print, download or email their RapidPass to themselves and take it with them to show at registration.
