If you are going to be in Bar Harbor on Thursday, March 27th please take a little over a hour out of your day, and give blood!

MDI Hospital and the American Red Cross are hosting a blood drive on Thursday, March 27th from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm at the MDI YWCA. There are many slots open and the need is great.

The American Red Cross has been helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies for more than 130 years. On average, the Red Cross must collect 15,000 pints of blood every day to meet the needs of patients at approximately 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country
