GOWRIE - The Gowrie Community Blood Drive will be from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Gowrie Community Center, Market Street.
Schedule a blood donation appointment online at www.lifeservebloodcenter.org or call (800) 287-4903.
According to LifeServe Blood Center, it is especially important to donate blood during this time of year, as poor weather conditions and busy schedules can often lead to a decrease in the number of blood donations which could lead to a shortage in the blood supply. One unit of blood can help save the lives of up to three people. Eligible blood donors must be at least 16 years old, should weigh at least 120 pounds and should be in general good health.
