Blood drives scheduled for May


First Posted: 6/7/2009

The American Red Cross will conduct three blood drives in the Back Mountain Area during the month of June.

The first drive will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9, at the Dallas Baptist Church, Route 415, Dallas. The ladies of the church will serve home-made goodies to all who donate.

A drive will be held from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 22, at the Dallas American Legion, Memorial Highway, Dallas.

The last drive of the month will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 27, at the Kingston Township Municipal Building. Scouts from Brownie Troop #2642 from Trucksville will act as hostesses for this drive.

The Red Cross requests that all donors bring identification and their Red Cross blood card. First-time donors will receive a card after their first donation.

Anyone 17 years of age, weighing a minimum of 110 pounds and in good health is to donate. Youths 16 years of age accompanied by a parent may also donate.

A pre-scheduled appointment can be made to reduce the time needed for donating. To schedule an appointment call 823-7164, extension 2150.
