---- — Blood donors needed at two drives

The American Red Cross will hold several community blood drives this month. All eligible and new blood donors are encouraged to give blood. Blood donors are needed every day to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

The summer months can be a challenging time for blood collections.

In July, all donors will receive a coupon for $2.50 off the purchase of a 48-ounce container of Turkey Hill’s All Natural Ice Cream. Come out to donate blood and you will also have the chance to win two Boston Red Sox tickets and to be honored at Fenway Park as the Blood Donor of the Game.

Donors will be needed July 16 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Salvation Army, 18 Folsom Road, Derry.

Londonderry High School at 295 Mammoth Road will host a blood drive July 22 from 2 to 7 p.m.

To make an appointment to donate blood, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org.
