The first of the year is always a critical time for Red Cross Blood Drives.  It is after the busy holidays and people have their minds on so many other things.  But the need is great this year!

There will be a blood drive this Thursday at St. James Episcopal Church at 305 Main in Oneonta.  The drive will run from 1pm until 6pm. Donations are down and the need for blood is urgent. It's very safe to give. For details on this and other blood drives call the American Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS.
