Blood supplies remain critically low. Those who step up to donate represent an unsung hero vital to the survival of individuals who require transfusions daily, according to the American Red Cross. Blood and organ donation remain generous yet simple, lifesaving gifts that any individual can offer.

The American Red Cross will be holding a blood drive on Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Crossroads to Calvary in Morrill. Donor hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Consider the opportunity to help save three lives by donating an hour of your time.
