Escalon’s First Baptist Church has joined with the American Red Cross and will be hosting a Blood Drive on Thursday, Nov. 12.
Red Cross officials said that donors are needed now more than ever, with the COVID-19 pandemic having an impact on donations. Also, with the winter months looming and the holidays fast approaching, officials want to encourage donors to give so they can increase the blood supply on hand.
All blood donations at the First Baptist Church drive will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies.
Those interested in donating are asked to schedule an appointment online at redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: First Baptist Escalon.
The church is at 1511 Catherine Way; the blood drive is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day.
