Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing and eggs are hatching. It’s spring, a time of renewal. For hospital patients in need of blood, hope for a fresh start comes from generous donors.

Spring into action and give hope by giving blood. You just might provide a fresh start for someone.

A bloodmobile will be held April 3 from 1-7 p.m. at St. Mary’s High School Fieldhouse, 104 St. Mary’s St. NW. To schedule an appointment for this bloodmobile please call 794-6141. For eligibility questions call 866-236-3276.

A second bloodmobile will be held April 10 at the Sleepy Eye High School gym from 8:30-2:30. Appointments at this blood drive are appreciated and can be made by calling Deb at the public school at 794-7904 ext. 1114, but walk-ins are welcome.

The American Red Cross said that previous blood drive donor numbers were down due to the flu season so donors will be appreciated.
