Donate blood

An American Red Cross blood drawing will be held Tuesday, Aug. 26, in Sunnyside before the Labor Day holiday. Often the need for blood is increased over holidays, so residents of Sunnyside and the surrounding area are asked to make a gift that could save a life.

The 2008-09 Miss Sunnyside candidates are the sponsors for this blood drawing, which will be held at the United Methodist Church at Ninth Street and Edison Avenue from 1 to 6 p.m.

Walk-ins are gladly accepted, but to shorten your waiting time, call to schedule an appointment at 1-800-448-3543.

Blood donors must be in general good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. Teens as young as 16 are eligible to donate blood if they have a signed American Red Cross parental consent form.
