Eagles set to host blood drive

News Journal

WILMINGTON – The Fraternal Order of Eagles in Wilmington is helping boost the blood supply during the heart of winter by hosting a community blood drive Wednesday, Feb. 8 from noon to 6:30 p.m. at 141 E. Sugartree St.

Community Blood Center is offering the “Rise, Shine & Give” ceramic coffee tumbler to everyone who registers to donate. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

Winter presents many challenges to maintaining the area blood supply. A high number of donors have not been able to donate this winter because of seasonal illness. If you must miss an appointment to donate please reschedule when you can. We especially encourage eligible donors to help with the need for type O positive and type O negative whole blood donations and type A/B platelet and plasma donations.
