Blood drive slated for early November in Swanton


The next Swanton bloodmobile is scheduled for Nov. 4 from noon to 6 p.m. It will be located at 124 N. Main St. as it has in the past. The building is now called the Living Waters Alliance Church.

To make an appointment go to the website www.redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: SWANTONCOMMUNITY. You may also call Red Cross at 1-80-733-2767 or Karen David at 419-826-4625. Walk-ins are welcome.

Eligible donors for whole blood have not given since Sept. 9 (56 days) and July 15h (112 days) for power red donations. All blood types are needed, especially the universal type, O Negative.

Every two seconds in the U.S, someone needs blood. Each donation can help to save up to three lives. It is critical to get new donors because only 3.8% of the eligible donors make the time to donate.
