The LifeServe Blood Center will be having blood drives in three locations over the next two days. The first will take place at the Britt Community Blood Drive on Wednesday from 1:30pm to 6:30pm. The drive will be located at the Britt Municipal Building on 170 Main Avenue in downtown Britt.
The second event, also on a Wednesday, will be the Klemme Community Blood Drive which will be at the Klemme Community Center at 204 East Main Street. In both cases, the organizers ask that you make an appointment by calling 800-287-4903 or going to the LifeServe website at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org to sign up.
The third event in the area will be at the St. James Catholic Church from 1:30pm to 6:30pm in Forest City. Again, officials are asking that you make an appointment which will speed up the donation process and paperwork.
Officials ask that donors be at least 16 years old and be either at or above 120 pounds. You must be free of all medications and free of illnesses too. Those who donate will earn donation points good towards a limited edition “Pay It Forward” t-shirt. Officials urge that people donate now because of the holiday season and the increase in the number of accidents that occur this time of year.
