The American Red Cross is holding several blood drives around the local area this week. The need for blood is constant, with someone in the US needing the Gift of Life every 2 seconds. One donation can help save the lives of multiple people as well. Today (MON), the Bloodmobile will be at the Epiphany Lutheran Church in Eagle Lake and the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Glencoe from 2 to 7pm, and the Evangelical Covenant Church in Trimont from 1 to 7. On Wednesday eligible donors can give blood at St. Clair High School from 12:30 to 6:30, and on Thursday the Bloodmobile stops at the Walnut Grove Community Center from 2 to 7pm. For more information on giving blood log on to www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
