Saline MRC/CERT blood drive to benefit local patients
Community Blood Center will conduct a life-saving blood drive on Friday, Aug. 7, from 2-6 p.m. according to a press release issued by CBC.
“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they often think about fire and police departments.” said Kim Peck, senior executive director of Community Blood Center. “Community Blood Center and its donors are very similar to police officers and fire fighters. We make up a life-saving team that is here to meet the needs of local patients. Our volunteer donors roll up their sleeves and do so without hesitation.”
Marshall individuals can help by donating blood at the blood drive on Aug. 7. The drive will be held at First Baptist Church, 8 N. Odell Avenue, in the Family Life Center.
Donors are encouraged to make an appointment by visiting savealifenow.org/group and using Group Code: CBGA. For additional details, contact Tony Day at 660-886-3312.
