Blood drive set Wednesday
SunnyBrook Assisted Living will host a Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center blood drive from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Donors who last gave blood on or before Oct. 17 are eligible to donate. Walk-in donors are welcome, but for appointments, call 800-452-1097.
According to blood center personnel, blood donation is a safe, simple procedure that takes about an hour to complete.
Donors must be at least 16 years old, in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. A blood donor card or other photo identification is required. Sixteen-year-old donors must present a signed parental consent form. The consent forms are available at www.bloodcenter.org.
