Red Cross blood drive

Thursday, January 17, 2013

The American Red Cross will conduct a blood drive in Fort Scott Feb. 7-8 at Fort Scott Community College, 2108 S. Horton.

Hours Feb. 7 are 12:45-7 p.m. and Feb. 8 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Like the emergency room of a hospital, the American Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient emergencies with blood products 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year, a news release said. Through the dedication of blood donors, the Red Cross can be prepared day in and day out, no matter when or where blood is needed, the release said.

All blood types are currently needed. For more information and to make an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
