Blood donation opportunities in July

While many of us spend leisure time at the beach or around a pool this summer, Red Cross blood drive sponsors will be making the biggest splash of all by encouraging donors to give their gift of life by giving up just one hour of their time to donate blood. Start the month off right by donating blood on July 1, at the Mt. Gilead Fire Depart. from 11 am to 5 pm. If you miss this one you can mark July 13 on your calendar and give at Trinity UM Church from 1 pm to 7 pm.
