Blood drive set for June 11


A young woman hemorrhaging after a c-section giving birth to a baby girl; multiple victims of a vehicle-versus-large-truck crash; a local girl with aplastic anemia who needs ongoing transfusions.

These are just a few of the possible scenarios where life-saving blood is needed immediately and consistently.

From where will the blood come?

Blood cannot be manufactured. It must be given from one person to another.

It will be provided by members of a caring community with the ability and desire to be good neighbors.

That opportunity will be at Centerpoint Church, 2750 Cornerstone Drive, on Tuesday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Hopefully this time you will be the generous donor.

Another time you may be the grateful recipient.

To make an appointment, please contact local volunteer Sharee Grazda at (970) 946-2760 or visit the website. You may also call Vitalant at (877) 25-VITAL. There will be posters around town which have a QR code which can be scanned on your phone.
