Blood drive set

June 8, 2006

Community Blood Center, the provider of blood sent to local hospitals, will have a blood drive from 8:30 a.m. to noon Friday at the Eudora Community Blood Vessel at C&S Market, 1402 Church St.

To donate blood, a person must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds and be in good health.

Because of increased usage for trauma patients and a transplant, the blood center is running critically low on type O negative and O positive bloods.

Community Blood Center must collect at least 580 pints of blood each day to meet the needs of the area.

To make an appointment online, visit the Web site at www.esavealifenow.org and use sponsor code eudoracomm or call Lou Ann Godfrey at (800) 279-5943.
