Lexington High Blood Drive @ Parkview Baptist Church
Dec 26 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The community is invited to help maintain a strong blood supply this winter by joining Lexington High School student Tessa Eldridge for a blood drive.  By helping hospital patients in need, donors can also help Tess earn volunteer hours and a chance to earn a scholarship through the american Red Cross Leaders Save Lives Program.

The holidays can be a challenging season to collect blood.  Donations often decline when school is out of session and many regular donors delay giving while they vacation and take part in holiday activities, but the need for blood is constant.

All presenting donors will receive a free long-sleeved t-shirt from the American Red Cross, while supplies last.

To make an appt or to learn more, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.  Local contact: Amanda Koubek 308-660-6709.
