Community blood drive planned in McNabb

MCNABB — Putnam County Methodist churches will host the next Red Cross community blood drive in McNabb on Monday, June 22, from 1 to 6 p.m. The drive will be held at Goldasich Hall in the McNabb Fire Department on Route 89, south of McNabb. The blood drive offers a chance for repeat and first-time donors to save lives with their donation of blood. All blood types save lives. For appointments, call 800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or call Betty and Lisa Johnson at 815-882-2336. Donors may also sign up and pre-register online using RapidPass at redcrossblood.org or can download and the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. The pandemic has heightened this need, including the need for plasma donors.. Also, the short supply of Type A, B and O is also in need of your donations, but all blood types are welcome as many drives have been cancelled and blood shortages continue throughout the United States.
