The Waldo County General Hospital Aid will sponsor its annual blood drive on Friday, Oct. 25, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge Hall (behind the Shrine Club) on the corner of Northport Avenue and Wight Street, Belfast.
All donors will be entered into a raffle for a $200 Visa gift card, courtesy of Suburban Propane.
To donate, you must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, be in good health, and show a valid I.D. You must also provide a list of any medications you are taking.
After donating, you will be provided with free snacks and a place to rest for about 15 minutes. The complete process from registration to relaxing at the canteen usually takes about an hour.
To make an appointment for the Oct. 25 blood drive or for more information, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org.
