Saron Church to host blood drive, hospital encourages citizens to donate

From Greene County General Hospital:

Urgent Need!

Community members are being urged to schedule blood donation appointments to ensure an adequate blood supply during the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is critically important that healthy individuals continue to donate to minimize disruptions to the blood supply and ensure blood is available.

Thank you to Saron Church for hosting a blood drive this Saturday! Please sign up here for the blood drive.

Saron United Church of Christ Blood Drive

9 am to 12 pm
Fellowship Hall
440 1st Street NE in Linton

They are taking extra steps during our blood drives to ensure safety by:

  • Pre-screening donors before entering the blood drive.
  • Temperatures will be taken and anyone with 99.5 or over will be deferred.
  • Beds are spaced 6 feet apart and there is extensive cleaning of all equipment after use.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE AN APPOINTMENT TO HELP WITH THE FLOW OF THE BLOOD DRIVE.
