Memorial blood drive looking for donations

The fourteenth annual Alvin Levy and Beth Dashevsky Memorial Blood Drive will be held at Congregation Kodimoh, 124 Sumner Ave. in Springfield Nov. 18 from 8:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

This drive is being sponsored by The Alliance of Orthodox Congregations in memory of two of their beloved members who passed away 14 years ago.

The blood supply in our region has been at an all time low this past summer. Supplies of blood are now critically low. Respond by giving blood now. The goal of this drive is about 70 units of donated blood.

In order to donate, a person must be 17 years old or older and weight a minimum of 110 pounds.

All blood donors will receive a special gift.

Although walk-ins are welcome, we are asking that you schedule an appointment to facilitate a smooth operation and to avoid long lines.

A valid ID is required in order to donate.

To make an appointment or for further information, call Arlene Levy at 739-6740.
