Community Blood Center’s blood drive will be in Iola from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday at the North Community Building, 505 N. Buckeye. Community Blood Center services Allen County Hospital’s blood supply.
“When individuals normally think of essential community services, they think about the fire and police departments,” said Dr. Jay Menitove, executive director and medical director with Community Blood Center. “However, because Community Blood Center is here to meet the needs of local patients, we would hope that individuals in your community would consider us to be just as essential.”
Blood donors must provide identification, be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Those donating blood should get a good night’s rest, drink plenty of fluids and eat well before donating.
To make an appointment call B. Ellen Smith at (620) 365-3663 or (620) 365-0487. Walk-in donors will be welcome.
