As Thanksgiving approaches, we count our blessings. There is no better way to give thanks than by saving someone’s life though giving blood.
The last Barre Blood Drive in September was way below goal. Barre has a history of loyal donors and we would to have a record drive in November.
The next Barre Blood Drive is Monday, November 17th from 11:30-5:30 at the Barre Elks Lodge behind the Aldrich Public Library. The Barre Elks and Project Independence have joined together to sponsor the drive. All presenting donors will receive a delicious turkey and biscuit meal with carrot cake for dessert.
Make your appointment now by calling 1-800-RED CROSS, by logging onto www.redcrossblood.org or text BLOODAPP to 90999 to get the app that helps save lives.
All blood types are urgently needed and there is no upper age limit for donors. I look forward to seeing you all on the 17th.
