Blood drive Dec. 30 at Goessel church

A blood drive is planned from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30, at the Mennonite Church, 109 S. Church, Goessel.

American Red Cross officials urge everyone to give the perfect gift this holiday season by donating blood.

?It only takes about an hour to donate blood, and in that hour, you can unwrap a lifetime of memories for hospital patients in your community and across the country,? said Julie Fischer, donor recruitment representative for the Central Plains Region.

Everyone who comes to donate will receive a free T-shirt.

Those wanting to give can call 1-800-733-2767 or log on to www.redcrossblood.org.

A blood donor card or driver?s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old, or age 16 with completed parental consent form.
