The blood drive will be held from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Macon County Farm Bureau.  Red Cross officials say all blood types are needed, especially types O negative, A negative, and B negative.

Refreshments will be provided to donors during this event.  To schedule an appointment for this blood drive, call (217) 877-2436.  For more information on Red Cross blood drives, visit redcrossblood.org.
