The LifeServe Blood Center will hold a blood drive from 2 to 6 p.m. Jan. 8 at Grace Lutheran Church, 211 S. Ninth St.
Eligible blood donors must be at least 16 years old, should weigh at least 120 pounds and should be in general good health. To schedule a donation appointment visit www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or call (800) 287-4903.
According to the blood center, someone needs blood every two seconds. During the winter months the need for blood is constant, but poor weather conditions can make it challenging for donors to give blood. In an effort to boost the blood supply during the winter months, January has been designated as National Blood Donor Month to encourage donors to donate during this critical time of year.
