Next Bigfork blood drive scheduled for Dec. 6

| November 23, 2022 12:00 AM

The Red Cross is taking sign ups for their next blood drive in Bigfork. Montana's blood reserve continues to be below average, and they are looking to find as many local donors as possible.

For this blood drive, volunteers obtained a Double Red machine, which allows someone to donate more red blood cells than they usually can, which helps more patients in need.

The drive is Tuesday, December 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Bethany Lutheran Church/Fellowship Hall (downstairs) on Hwy 35 in Bigfork. Walk-ins are welcome, but having an appointment avoids waiting and saves time. You can sign up directly at www.redcrossblood.org or contact Organizer Steve Shapero by calling 406-890-5040
