The Red Cross is issuing an emergency request for donors with all blood types.

During summer vacation time, the blood supply gets low, plus many accidents occur in the summer time when children are outside playing. It takes an hour to save a life by donating blood. A driver's license or two other forms of identification are required.

A blood drive will be held on Saturday, August 10, 2013 at Faith Presbyterian Church at 24th and Monroe in Quincy. The blood drive will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.

To make an appointment, call 217-222-2880
