Blood Drive to be Nov. 11

The Erwin Community Blood Drive at the First Christian Church Fellowship Hall, 312 S. Main Ave., Erwin, will be held Friday, Nov. 11, from 12:30-5:30 p.m.
It’s the time of year when thoughts turn to home and the holidays. The American Red Cross and Delta Air Lines are teaming up to make those thoughts a reality for a few lucky blood and platelet donors.
The Home for the Holidays campaign, which runs through Dec. 31, gives each person who presents to donate blood or platelets with the Red Cross an opportunity to enter a drawing for the chance to win one of three pairs of round trip Delta Air Lines domestic tickets.
In addition, those who come to the Erwin Community Blood Drive can enter to win dinner for two at Toby’s Cafe.
Blood can be donated safely every 56 days. Most healthy people age 17 or older, or 16 with parental consent, who weigh at least 110 pounds, are eligible to donate blood and platelets. Donors who are 18 and younger must also meet specific height and weight requirements.
For more information or to schedule an appointment to donate, call (800) 733-2767.
