The next Swanton bloodmobile is scheduled for Jan. 7 at the Swanton Alliance Church Epic Center, 124 N. Main St. The hours for the drive are noon to 6 p.m.
To make an appointment go to the website: redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: SWANTONCOMMUNITY. You may also call 1-800-733-2767 or Karen David at 419-826-4625. Walk-ins are welcome.
Eligible donors for whole blood have not given since Nov. 12 and Double Red donors have not donated since Sept. 17. All blood types are needed. Hundreds of drives have been cancelled because of the hurricanes and the California fires, so donations are desperately needed.
