To The Sun:
Even though spring is here, it is difficult to tell by the current temperatures. But the April blood drive is just a few weeks away. There are many open appointment slots available, whole blood and Power Red, for everyone to choose from, if you beat the rush. A person may go online at redcrossblood.org to schedule an appointment, or call 1-800-Redcross (1-800-733-2767). Of course, walk-ins are welcome, but donors with appointments get first priority.
The drive will be at the First Christian Church, 1500 S. 29th, from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 26, and from 8 a.m. to noon Friday, April 27. If you have trouble making an appointment, please contact me at 778-6483. Leave a message and I will get back with you to make arrangements for your donation. And don’t forget Rapid Pass, an easy way to speed up your donation experience.
Please join us as we attempt to save lives. Bring a friend. I hope to see you there. — DEAN CRAMER, Parsons blood drive coordinator
