ARC Blood Drives set locally

    The American Red Cross urges people of all races and ethnicities to give blood or platelets to help increase the diversity of the blood supply. For patients with rare blood types, or those who receive regular blood transfusions, blood must be matched closely - beyond the primary A, B, O and AB blood types - to reduce the risk of developing complications from transfusion therapy.
    Upcoming blood donation opportunities in Van Buren County have been set at:
    HARTFORD - Today (Friday, Sept. 27) from 12 to 5:45 p.m., at the Federated Church, 65418 Red Arrow Hwy.
    DECATUR - October 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Decatur High School, 110 Cedar St.
    PAW PAW - October 9 from 12 to 5:45 p.m. at the Paw Paw Lions Club, 227 County Road 665.
    As a thank-you, those who come to give blood or platelets during the month of October will automatically be entered for a chance to win one of five $500 gift cards redeemable at hundreds of merchants, courtesy of Tango Card. (Terms apply; see
