Blood drive Tuesday

In anticipation of Labor Day weekend, Community Blood Bank will host a blood drive from 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, at Warren Public Library.

Available blood levels are already critically low and holiday weekends increase demand.

The drive will be held in the Slater Room. Walk-ins are welcome.

All donors must be at least 16 years old, those who are exactly 16 will require a signed parental consent form.

Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be in generally good health, and have had no new body piercings nor tattoos for 12 months.

All donors will be entered to win a weekend getaway package to the Finger Lakes.
