MAXWELTON (WVND) – Maxwelton Ruritan Club will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Saturday, Sept. 3, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at The Henning Church of God on Vago Road.
For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 304-646-4453 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org under Ruritan Community Blood Drive.
“Maxwelton Ruritan is committed to strengthening our community and helping meet hospital and patient needs through blood donations,” said Larry Bowman, president. “This blood drive is our way of giving staff, colleagues and neighbors an opportunity to help save lives.”
Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross.
“We urge community members to donate blood and help ensure that patients in local hospitals have a supply of blood ready and waiting before an emergency occurs. There’s no better feeling than knowing that your blood donation may give someone a second chance at life,” said Bowman.
According to the Red Cross, donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative.
Maxwelton Ruritan is a community service organization that strives to make the community a better place to live, work and own a business.
