R-H Staff

ELDORADO – North Central Rescue will sponsor a blood drive Monday, Dec. 12, from 4-7 p.m. The Community Blood Center Bloodmobile will be at the Eldorado Fire Department, 140 E. Mill St. CBC is honoring blood donors as “a force for good” with the “Rogue Blood Donor – A Story of Hope” Star Wars inspired t-shirt, free to everyone who registers to donate. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.

The Star Wars saga, a favorite science fiction fantasy with its enduring theme of hope, returns to the silver screen this holiday season. The “Rogue Blood Donor – a Story of Hope” t-shirt is black with the iconic moon-sized space station in the shape of a blood drop. It’s free to anyone who registers to donate through Saturday, Jan. 7 at any CBC Donor Center and most CBC mobile blood drives.

The holiday period can be a challenging time for maintaining the area blood supply. Anyone who misses an appointment to donate should reschedule when possible. Continued support of type O whole blood donors and type A/B platelet and plasma donors is encouraged.
