MCNABB — A weather delay caused Red Cross to reschedule the blood drive intended for last week, to Tuesday, Feb. 12, from noon to 4 p.m., at Goldasich Hall in the McNabb Fire Department on Illinois Route 89, south of McNabb. This was first rescheduled for Feb. 9.
The blood drive offers a chance for regular and first-time donors to save lives with their donation of blood. Type A, B and O donors are particularly needed, but every unit donated is put to use as blood shortages continue throughout the U.S.
The blood drive is sponsored by New Hope Parish. For appointments, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or call Betty and Lisa Johnson at 815-882-2336. Donors may also sign up and pre-register online at redcrossblood.org. Walk-ins are also welcome.
