The Community Blood Center has issued a plea for blood donors in the area to attend the Blood Drive Friday, May 10, in Rock Port. The latest blood drive will be held at 600 S. Nebraska Street in the Vo-Ag building from 2:00-7:00 p.m. Due to the cancellations of blood drives in the area because of winter weather and now flooding, blood supplies are running very low.

Community Blood Center is the primary provider of blood and components to 70 plus hospitals in the area. To make an appointment online, visit, enter Group Code: EG4V. For additional details, contact Ross Hastert at 660-744-6296 ext 118.
