Blood donors are encouraged to participate in the American Red Cross blood drive, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 27, at the Trinity Mennonite Church.
Flu outbreaks this season have dramatically reduced blood supplies nationwide. While all blood types are needed, Type O donors are especially urged to give.
An appointment to donate can be made by calling 1-888-719-8929. Walk-ins also will be welcomed.
