It's a critical time and blood banks are short and the City of Hermiston is doing a blood drive in April to bolster blood donor resources.

There will be two days set aside for the blood drive that's going to be held on April 15th and 16th at the Hermiston Community Center.

This is a City of Hermiston approved event. Measures will be in place to protect you and others from the spread of COVID-19.

The April 15th time is from 12:30 PM - 5:30 PM and April 16th time is from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM.

If you want to volunteer to give blood, contact james.martinez@redcross.org or call (509-713-4430) for more information or to set up an appointment to donate.
