The Red Cross is calling for blood donations to help boost their typically-low supplies during the holiday months. There are several planned blood drives in early December in Adair County. The drives include: Dec. 4, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Truman State; Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at ATSU; and Dec. 12 from noon to 6 p.m. at Highland Crest. To make an appointment, call (800) 733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients during times when supplies can dip. Donors must be 17 years of age, weight at least 110 pounds and be in generally good health.
