Blood supplies in our area have been critically low this winter. The Glen Rock Women in Community Service group asks the community to support its annual Blood Drive on March 11 from 4 to 8 p.m. This drive is held in conjunction with Community Blood Services at the Central School gymnasium, 600 Maple Avenue. WICS members will be calling residents who have previously donated to set up appointments. However, new donors are greatly needed. Anyone in good health, ages 17 through75, and weighing 110 pounds or more, is usually able to donate. Donors should eat a moderate meal prior to giving blood and must bring identification with them. Babysitting will be provided at Central School during the Blood Drive. After giving blood, donors are asked to rest briefly and have some homemade refreshments. Each donor will receive a card indicating his or her blood type, which can be very useful in emergencies. The entire donor process takes about 45 minutes. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, call WICS Blood Drive Chairwoman Joann Coughlin at (201) 447-0273 or Community Blood Services at (201) 4443900.
