Red Cross Blood Drive Scheduled for Wednesday, July 19 at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup

Wayne Memorial Hospital is hosting its next blood drive Wednesday, July 19, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the bloodmobile adjacent to the exterior entrance to The Café at Wayne Memorial. Appointments may be made by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or visiting and entering “wmh” when prompted for a sponsor code. Walk-ins are also welcomed. Donors will be entered into a raffle for $25 if we achieve five units over the drive goal. If 10 or more units are collected beyond the goal, the raffle increases to $50. The goal for this drive is 32 units.

All blood types are needed, as one pint of blood can save up to three lives. Donors may go online to to make their visit to the drive quicker.
