Blood drive to help restock local hospitals  Send a link to a friend

To help, there will be a blood drive on Monday from noon to 6 p.m. at the Logan County Paramedic Association building, 1300 N. Postville Drive in Lincoln.

For those who have never donated, the total time necessary is about an hour, which includes a confidential medical survey, mini physical and about 10 minutes in the donor chair.
