As we told you last week, there is an extreme shortage of blood supplies because of weather and illness. There are four blood drives scheduled this month for Yates County, three of which are this week.
The first will be held Wednesday from noon until 6 p.m. at the Himrod Fire House. That same day, a blood drive will be held at the Benton Fire House from 2 until 7 p.m. On Thursday, the Branchport Fire House will host a blood drive from 1:30 until 6:30 p.m.
