What better way to celebrate Christmas than by giving the gift of life?

The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints on the Beechland Road in Ellsworth is hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Tuesday, December 24th from 9 to 2 p.m.

During the holidays the need for blood is exacerbated as many regular donors are on vacation, and then snowstorms/foul weather disrupts the regular collection of blood.
