First Posted: 11/16/2008

The American Red Cross will conduct two blood drives in the Back Mountain Area in the month of November.

The first drive will be held from noon to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at the Dallas American Legion, Memorial Highway. The second will be from 1 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 25, at the Fellowship Evangelical Church, 45 Hildebrant Rd., Dallas.

The double red unit will be at both drives.

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 eligible 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.
