The Mothers of Preschoolers chapter at Fellowship Bible Church will host an American Red Cross blood drive for the Gardner community on Thursday, Jan. 19.
The drive will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the church, which is located at 16900 Waverly Road.
All blood types are needed to ensure the Red Cross maintains an adequate blood supply during the winter months. Donors must be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and be at least 17 years old (16 with a completed parental consent form). A blood donor card and driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. See www.redcrossblood.org to learn more about donating blood or to schedule a donation appointment at FBC’s blood drive.
Potential donors also can sign up for an appointment by calling the church office at (913) 856-8454. For more information about the drive, email Desiree McPherson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
