Local businesses available to help with blood center donation
After last week’s severe weather and many venturing out of town for spring break, Shepeard Community Blood Center is in immediate need for donors O-negative, O-positive and A-negative blood.
A few local businesses have blood drives set up to take donations. Shepeard’s centers are also available for those who wish to donate. Donors should be relatively healthy, weighing at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old. Sixteen year olds may donate with written parental consent. Donors need to bring a photo ID or Shepeard donor card.
