Public urged to donate

The American Red Cross will have a blood drive set up at the Ironton Fire Department on Saturday.

The blood drive will run from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the station, which is the second blood drive hosted by the Ironton Fire Department this year.

The American Red Cross urges people to donate blood, as there is currently a shortage. In addition, the American Red Cross provides about 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply, and blood is being distributed to hospitals as fast as donations are coming in.
