Touchette Hospital planning annual blood drive
Touchette Regional Hospital is inviting the public to participate in its annual fall blood drive on Nov. 2.
The event will be held at the Touchette Elderly Apartments in the Community Room, located at 5880 Bond Ave. in Centreville.
“The need for blood transfusions, not just locally but around the world, is so great,” said Felecia Jackson, community outreach specialist at TRH. “The generous donations from participants will help people in our very own community. It’s a great feeling and a great way to give back.”
The blood drive is scheduled from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. through the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. Blood donation can take 45 minutes to one hour and light snacks will be served to all donors. To learn about donor eligibility you can contact MVRBC Donor Support at (800) 747-5401 ext. 1281.
