Hillsboro blood drive scheduled for Oct. 27

The Hillsboro Mennonite Brethren Church, 300 Prairie Pointe, is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27.

Inventories continue to fluctuate and the Red Cross reminds Hillsboro residents that the on-going need for blood has never been more important, especially for those fighting cancer.

To be eligible, donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with a completed parental consent form. The donor must weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in generally good health.

For questions about donating blood, call (800) 448-3543.
