  • The SSVdP-St Joseph Hand of Mercy Conference are sponsoring a blood drive being held from 12-6 p.m. on Monday, July 9 and Tuesday July 10 between 8:30 a.m. and  2 p.m. at the Devils Lake Armory.
    To schedule an appointment for a blood donation please call Chuck Jerome at 739-9993.
    According to Rich Larcombe, manager of United Blood Services, donor participation drops off drastically at summer blood drives, but the need continues.
    “It’s something we see every summer,” Larcombe said.  “People simply are much busier with outdoor fun and vacations than they are at other times of the year.  Although donors might have other things to do, patients continue to need blood. Eligible blood donors are encouraged to give blood at least three times a year?once in the summer—to keep hospital shelves stocked with lifesaving blood.”
