Members of Sunbury United Methodist Church will hold an American Red Cross blood drive from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.
The blood type most often requested by hospitals is Type O, but blood drive organizers said all types of blood are in demand.
The church’s Nov. 1 blood drive will be a little different than past blood drives at the church: The American Red Cross will use the “Bloodmobile,” and whole blood and double red cell donations will be available.
Walk-ins are welcome, but the wait time might be longer without an appointment.
To schedule an appointment to donate, go to redcrossblood.org/centralohio and type Sunbury’s ZIP Code – 43074 – in the “Find a Blood Drive” box. Scroll down to Nov. 1, the SUMC Blood Drive, click the red arrow, and schedule an appointment.
Sunbury United Methodist Church is at 100 W. Cherry St.
