On its Web site at RedCrossBlood.org, the American Red Cross reports there is an emergency need for blood. Because of that, the Red Cross needs blood donors now more than ever. All types are needed, but especially O negative, which can be used to treat any patient.
As part of RP Johnson and Son’s We Build It Forward community outreach program, they will host an American Red Cross Community Blood Drive in Andover on Thursday, December 6, from 11 AM to 4 PM at their Millwork Showcase. Appointments are recommended, though walk-ins are welcome. Call 800 RED-CROSS (733-2767) or visit RedCrossBlood.org to schedule an appointment or for more information.
