The Red Cross blood supply has reached emergency levels and all blood types are needed.

Because of the shortage, all eligible donors are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and make a big difference in helping to save lives.

To assist the Red Cross in its mission to ensure an adequate supply, please consider donating blood at the upcoming drive on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Donations will be accepted at Maximillians in Mount Calvary from 11:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Persons who are healthy, at least 17 years old (age 16 with parental consent), and weigh a minimum of 110 pounds are eligible to give blood.

Walk-ins are welcome and, as always, donors will be treated to a light lunch after giving blood.

(Please see the August 8 issue of the Tri-County News for more on this story.)
