Red Cross schedules blood drives for July

Jul 01, 2019

Bangor — The Red Cross urges donors of all blood types to give now to help prevent delays in medical care this summer. During the summer, especially around holidays like Independence Day, donations often don’t keep pace with patient needs, so prospective donors are encouraged to make an appointment to give blood soon.

To make an appointment, visit or call 800-733-2767.

Upcoming blood drives in Knox and Waldo counties include the following:


July 5, noon to 5 p.m., Tarratine Tribe, 153 Main St.

July 8, noon to 5 p.m., Waldo County Shrine Club, 20 Northport Ave.


July 15, 12:30 to 5:30 p.m., First Congregational Church of Camden, 55 Elm St.


July 12, 1 to 6 p.m., YMCA, 116 Union St.
