Giving blood

Janet Janesko, a collection specialist for the American Red Cross, prepares to collect blood from Jay Costello of Toronto, one of many who turned out for a blood drive hosted by the Follansbee Chamber of Commerce Wednesday at the Follansbee Community House. Phyllis Riccadonna, account manager for the American Red Cross, Greater Alleghenies Region, said there is an urgent need for blood at this time. Blood drives will be held from noon to 5:30 p.m. Monday and from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 16 at Crossroads Christian Church in Wintersville; from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 10 at Toronto High School; and from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 16 at Jefferson County Joint Vocational School. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments may be made by calling (800) 733-2767 or visiting RedCrossBlood.org. — Warren Scott
