Bloodmobile in Watkins

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be at the Watkins Village Hall Wednesday, May 28, from 1-7 p.m. The need for blood is so vital. Every two seconds, someone in America needs blood. The reasons people need blood are numerous - accident and burn victims, cancer patients, children with blood disorders, people having surgery - the list goes on. Blood donated in Minnesota stays in the state. If you are at least 17 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and are in good general health, you are eligible to give blood. New donors are always needed. For more information or to make an appointment, call  Doris at (320) 764-5133. Walk-ins are welcome, but those with appointments will be honored first.
