Blood drive slated Jan. 2 in Hackensack

Potential donors are encouraged to call United Blood Services to find out if they are eligible to donate blood. The next opportunity to give will be Jan. 2 at Hackensack Community Building from 1-6:30 p.m. Contact Berna Miller at 218-675-6137 to make an appointment or call United Blood Services at 1-800-917-4929 for more information.

To save time, donors can now fill out their Health History Questionnaire online at the day of their donation. To donate blood, volunteers must be at least 16 years old (16 year old donors need a minor donor permit which is available at the blood drive or online) and be in good health.
