Millions of Americans require blood transfusions each year. Every two seconds someone needs donated blood in order to survive. Blood donations always dip in the summer since blood donors are busy with vacations and outdoor fun. Donors are needed to help bolster the blood supply for their community.
Community blood drives are slated for:
Tuesday, July 10, from 12:30 to 5:30 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church, 801 W. Lincoln Way, Jefferson; and
Wednesday, July 11, from 3 to 7 pm at the Scranton Community Center (note change of usual location).
Persons who would like to make an appointment to donate blood can go to lifeservebloodcenter.org or call 800-287-4903
