Baldwin EMC’s Spring Into Action blood drive is STILL ON for this Thursday, March 19, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Baldwin EMC’s headquarters, located at 19600 State Highway 59 in Summerdale. However, to comply with recommendations set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local officials, the co-op is making adjustments for Thursday’s event.
Specifically, the event will be held in the LifeSouth Community Blood Centers bloodmobile, which will be parked at the cooperative’s Summerdale location. This will be a change from the Baldwin EMC Training Center, where the blood drive is usually held.
Each pint of blood has the potential to save as many as three lives, including accident victims, those fighting chronic illnesses and patients recovering from surgery.
Everyone at least 17 years old, 110 pounds and in generally good health is invited to donate blood. All blood types are needed and first-time donors are welcome. The pints they receive will benefit local medical centers, including Thomas Hospital, North Baldwin Infirmary, USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital and Mobile Infirmary, among many others in Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
