drive set for June 11
During the summer, blood donations typically drop off dramatically as donors go on vacation and schools close, but the need for blood never takes a holiday. The American Red Cross urges people to donate blood as it is critical to the ability to provide a steady and ample supply of blood for those who depend on its life-saving benefits.
The Cottonwood Blood Drive is scheduled for June 11that the Cottonwood Community Hall; call Brenda Kaschmitter or Cheri Holthaus at 962-3251 to schedule an appointment.
Any healthy person age 17 (age 16 with signed parental consent) or older and weighing at least 110 pounds may be eligible to donate blood. Valid identification is required for all blood donations.
