Blood drives set for Connell, Othello

Gift card or T-shirt offered to donors

CONNELL — The American Red Cross is asking area residents to consider donating blood this month at two events.

On Thursday, March 14, Connell High School, 1100 W. Clark Road, will host a blood driver from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Then on Wednesday, March 27, a blood drive is planned for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Othello Church of the Nazarene, 835 S. 10th Ave., Othello.

The blood drives are the only ones currently scheduled in the area, the American Red Cross reported.

People of all blood types — especially those with Type O — are needed to increase the area blood and platelet supply, officials said.

Those who donate blood at the Connell event will receive a $10 e-gift card to a pet supply merchant, officials said. Plus, they will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of five $3,000 gift cards.

Details on registering for the gift card giveaway are available online at

Those who donate blood at the Othello drive will get an exclusive Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire and Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.
