JAY - The Red Cross has scheduled their next blood drive in Jay for Wednesday, April 8.

The Jay Community Center has been closed, due to the coronavirus, so they moved the location to the American Legion Post 195 at 701 Highway 20, next to the Delaware County Waste collection site.

It will be held 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., with a lunch break from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Each donor will be sanitized and their temperature taken at the door and the facility will be fully sanitized to prohibit the spread of disease.

You may call the Red Cross direct at 1-800-733-2767 to secure a Rapid Pass, after they collect your information.

Each person using the Rapid Pass, April 1 to April 8, will receive an Amazon gift card for $5.00 in addition to making the process move more quickly.

This is a crucial time for donors to step up…or for someone to become a first-time blood donor, as the need is great due to lower donors nation-wide because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Your gift may very well help save someone’s life, give on April 8, 2020.

Any questions you may have, call Virginia Cordell at 918-801-6788.
