The urgent need for blood donations in the area is well documented and you can help out this weekend. 

Metro Medical Services in Loves Park is hosting a Blood Drive/Bone Marrow Registry drive on Saturday October 1 at the Loves park City Hall from noon to 4PM. The American Red Cross is coming with the Delete Blood Cancer registry, the REACT helicopter will be lading at 1PM and the PINK HEALS fire truck and squad car will be there in all their pink glory.

In addition to all these KID friendly events there will be several animal rescue agencies with their adoptable friends. So swing on by, help put a dent in blood cancer and maybe even find a new furry friend!
