Blood drive to honor Dwomick, Stamper

Erwin Community Blood Drive will be held Friday, July 9, at First Christian Church, 312 S. Main Ave., Erwin, from 12:30-5:30 p.m.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 202-5619.
This blood drive is a tribute to the memory of Jessica Dwomick and Aaron Stamper. Remembrance mementos will be given to each donor: Jessica’s “Quiet Time Journal” will be given in her memory, along with orange rubber memorial bracelets for Aaron.
The supply of type O negative blood at the American Red Cross has dropped to critically low levels. Type O negative blood is always in high demand because it can be transfused to patients with any blood type, especially in emergency situations. Type O negative donors are needed to help prevent the fragile type O negative blood supply from reaching a crisis level.
Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to give blood. Please bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate.
