Have you ever considered giving blood and then for some reason backed out? Maybe you made the appointment but something came up at work and you didn’t make it. Maybe you made the appointment but just forgot or maybe you have never made an appointment at all. Whatever your personal situation, whatever your reasons for not having given in the past NOW is the time to step up to the plate and get it done.
While the Red Cross is working tirelessly in Japan and in our Southern States to provide assistance to tsunami and tornado victims we at home can do our part to help as well. On Saturday, June 11th from 8:30am. to 1:30pm. a blood drive will be held at St. Pauls Catholic Church located at 134 East Fifth Street in Oswego. We will be accepting walk-ins on that day. To reserve a time slot or for additional information please call 343-0967. “Support the Red Cross and Change a Life, starting with your own.”
