When you give blood, you give life.
The American Red Cross Blood Drive will be held Monday, August 10, at the American Legion Hall in Neligh.
Donations will be accepted from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. They will be accepting both blood donations and double red cell.
The most common donation is "whole" blood donation, which takes about a pint of blood. A Double Red Cell donation collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have type A Neg, B Neg, or O blood.
