The One to Count On...

Blood drive moved due to flooding

Jenny Vinzant, Associate Donor Resource Consultant from Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center has this related announcement:

Columbus Junction is scheduled to host a drive from 1:30 – 6:30 p.m. tomorrow (June 18th) at the Legion Hall. However, the flooding has caused the Legion to be utilized as a sandbagging station and we were left to find an alternate location. The Columbus City Masonic Lodge has graciously allowed MVRBC to use the building in order to continue blood collections.

Drive Specifics:

– Date: Wednesday, June 18th

– Hours: 1:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

– Location: Columbus City Masonic Lodge – Corner of Columbus and Market Streets – Columbus City, IA 52737

– Goal: 40 units of blood

*As the flood waters have challenged our coordination and planning of this drive, we are relying on walk-in donors to fill our time slots and meet our goal; no need to call to schedule an appointment.
