There will be a community blood drive in Sheridan this week that will take place Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Typically three day blood drives are held early in the week, however, with Christmas, that wasn't an option says Donor Recruitment Specialist Mike Frigon with United Blood Services.
Frigon points out that it can be tough this time of year to find enough healthy donors.
Frigon said appointments are strongly recommended, although walk-ins will be welcome. He added that walk-ins may experience a short wait. The blood drive will take place at the Best Western Sheridan Center Ballroom on Wednesday from noon to 6 pm; Thursday from 11 am to 5:30 pm and on Friday from 10 am to 3 pm. You can make an appointment by logging on to www.bloodhero.com (sponsor code: sheridan) or by calling 1-800-365-4450.
