BLOOD DRIVE SET FOR JUNE 22 AT LEGION
Donating blood is one of the simplest things a person can do to help save a patient's life. For the hour it takes to give blood, there could be a whole community of people thankful for another birthday give to a loved one.
The community is invited to become a hometown hero and answer the call of patients in need by donating blood on Wednesday, June 22 from 1-7 p.m. at the American Legion in Minneota.
