Three chances to give blood this month
The American Red Cross encourages donors to consider giving blood this month.
Since the beginning of the year, widespread flu and inclement winter weather in some parts of the country have prevented many regular donors from making or keeping their blood donation appointments, according to the Red Cross. Healthy and diverse blood donors are needed to help maintain a sufficient blood supply.
The following blood drives are planned in the Quincy area:
Feb. 24: 1:30 to 6 p.m. at the Quincy Community Center, 115 F St. S.W.
Feb. 25: 12:30 to 6 p.m. at the Ephrata Recreation Center, 112 Basin St. S.W.
Feb. 26: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Quincy School District bus garage, 721 F St. S.E.
