Two blood drives set

First Posted: 11/30/2008

Misericordia University will sponsor a blood drive from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday Dec. 9. While this drive is being conducted on campus, it is a community drive open to all donors.

A blood drive will be also held from 1 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 22, at the Irem Temple Country Club. This drive is sponsored by the Dallas Baptist Church. Ladies of the church will serve homemade goodies to all donors.

The double red unit is scheduled to be at both drives.

The Red Cross requests that all donors bring identification and their Red Cross blood cards. 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.
