A blood drive is set for Wednesday(6-13) in Elcho and a Red Cross spokesperson says the need is critical. Blood representative Marc Sutton....

"...we're going to be doing a blood drive at the Elcho Fire and Rescue building, which will be on Wednesday, June 13, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If anyone can come out and donate, we can definitely use it.. We have an urgent need for blood which typically happens in the summer. Every donation is needed and every donation helps...."

Sutton says the need is on-going, but donations drop in the summer......

"...In the summer time people are on vacation and school's out, but the need for blood remains constant. We still have people going through treatments, people having surgery, so that need for blood doesn't change. It's even more important that people come out and give that life-saving donation...."

Sutton says to find a blood donation location, go to the website redcrossblood. org. He says you also fill out your health history online which saves time when you donate.
