Red Cross offers gift with blood donation

NEW CASTLE — The American Red Cross is offering a gift to people who donate blood this week.

While supplies last, donors will receive a Red Cross tote bag as part of the Red Cross Month observation in March.

A blood drive is scheduled Wednesday in New Castle at First Presbyterian Church, 125 N. Jefferson St. The event runs from noon to 6 p.m.

To make an appointment to donate blood, or for more information about other ways to get involved with the Red Cross, visit redcrossblood.org or call (800) 733-2767.

All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in.

People who are 17 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
