The American Red Cross is hosting blood drives during the Marshall County Blueberry Festival. They will be set up at 1600 N. Michigan St. in Plymouth today and tomorrow from noon until 6 p.m. EDT. Donors are encouraged to “sip in style.” They will receive Mason jar tumblers while supplies last.
Blood supplies have dipped as they often do in the summer, and donors are desperately needed. Potential donors must be in good health, weight at least 116 pounds and be at least 17, although 16 year olds can donate blood with parental consent.
