The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive at the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community on Monday, April 30 from 2-7 p.m.
"We scheduled this drive to include evening hours," said Michael Holohan, director of ministries at Hot Metal. "We hope this will make it convenient for folks who work in the South Side to participate after work." The drive will also be open during the afternoon.
The church will hold a drawing with the prize of a gift basket from the Big Dog Coffee shop at 2717 Sarah St. The basket includes coffee, tea, and a French press and anyone who completes the screening process will receive a ticket for the drawing. It is not necessary to complete a donation in order to enter the drawing.
The donation process consists of four steps: registration, a confidential screening of your medical history followed by a mini-physical, donation, and refreshments. The actual donation takes about ten minutes.
Those who want to schedule an appointment in advance are encouraged to call 412-481-4010 or register online at www.hotmetalbridge.com. Walk-in donations will be accepted as well.
