Blood Drive set for August 10th at the YMCA!

Roll up your sleeves and give the gift of life at The Lighthouse/American Red Cross Blood Drive on Friday, August 10th, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the YMCA of Callaway County (1715 Wood Street) in Fulton.

The blood supply is especially low, so the Red Cross will be giving you the option of giving one or two units of blood. If you give two units, they will take one pint of blood and only the platelets from the second pint.

Refreshments including cookies and juice will be served and live music will also be played at throughout the Blood Drive.

For more information, please call Pastor Jason Jordon at 573-220-8867. Also, visit the American Red Cross online at www.redcrossblood.org to make an appointment to give blood or call 573-635-1132 if you have any further questions .

You do not need an appointment to give (walk-ins are encouraged and accepted) but if you’re on a schedule, an appointment might be the best way to give quickly and stay on that schedule.

The community needs our help, so please encourage your family and friends to come out to the YMCA of Callaway County and donate blood. Let’s show Fulton that God’s people care.
