Why is Wednesday, July 24, a special day? It is your chance to give the gift of life by donating blood.
The Red Cross Blood Drive takes place at the Watkins Village Hall from 1-7 p.m. Your help is needed to meet our goal. Ask someone who has never donated to come with you.
Previous donors will be contacted to schedule an appointment but you can schedule your own by going to the website www.redcross.org or by calling Theresia at (320) 764-7251 or Betty at 764-9163. Walk-ins are always welcome. Please bring along your photo ID.
Your help will make this a success.
