Blood drive will be held in McNabb Oct. 19

MCNABB — Putnam County Methodist churches will host the next Red Cross Community Blood Drive in McNabb on Monday, Oct. 19, from 1 to 6 pm.

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. Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion. COVID-19 has caused closures of many blood drives, heightening the immediate need for donors as blood shortages continue throughout the U.S.

For appointments, call 800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or Lisa Johnson at 815-488-8143. Donors may also sign up and pre-register online using RapidPass at redcrossblood.org or can download and use the Red Cross Blood Donor App.

Walk-ins are only permitted if a time slot is open, due to the need for social distancing, so appointments are recommended and greatly preferred.

Please remember to “mask up” and maintain safe social distancing.
