Blood drive set Feb. 4 in Summersville

Blood drive set Feb. 4 in Summersville

What if you were in an accident and desperately needed blood?

Or what if your child needed blood? Or maybe your mother, father, husband, wife, sister, brother or best friend?

Now, what if you were told there was no blood available?

That’s something people think would never happen. But, is it an impossibility?

With all the many disasters the country has been facing, blood supplies are in great demand. The only way to replenish the supply is by donations.

Local LifeBridge AmeriCorps and Vista members will host a blood drive in Summersville on Monday, Feb. 4. The American Red Cross will be bringing a mobile unit to collect blood donations from citizens of local communities. The blood drive will be set up at the FRN office located in the day reporting center at 6308 Broad Street, Summersville (the former Heilig-Meyers Furniture building.)

Donations will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be available.

“Take just a few minutes out of your busy day, come out on your lunch break, or grab a friend and plan a day out around your blood donation,” said a spokesman. “If you are a returning donor, your participation, as always, will be greatly appreciated.

“And, if you have never given blood before, now is your chance to take part in one of the most generous donations you could possibly make.”

Anyone with questions can call Tara Harmon, Fayette County Starting Points, at 304-779-3109; Cindy Wright or Libby Heck, Webster County Starting Points, at 304-226-5000; JoAnn Wilfong or Cassie Jantauh, Nicholas County Starting Points, at 304-846-4479; or Debbie Salgado, Catholic Charities of Webster County, at 304-847-7416.
