A blood drive is set for next week at the Best Western Sheridan Center.
Cecile Pattison, in community relations at Sheridan Memorial Hospital, said the drive will be Monday and Tuesday and will be by appointment only.
Pattison said healthy people are encouraged to schedule a time to donate blood.
The drive is put on by Vitalant, the organization that supplies blood for Sheridan Memorial Hospital and the region. She said Vitalant schedules blood drives about every six weeks or so, and the drive next week is part of the organization’s normal schedule.
Pattison said people can schedule appointments by calling 1-877-258-4825 or by going online to bloodhero.com.
