Blood Drive Scheduled for Wednesday Amid Serious Shortage

There’s a nationwide blood shortage in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, so the Midland Center for the Arts and the Midland Rotary Club have stepped up to host a blood drive on Wednesday, April 8 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Midland Center for the Arts, 1801 W. St. Andrews.

The blood drive is a partnership with Versiti Blood Center of Michigan. Versiti will take extra social distancing precautions to create a safe environment for donors. They encourage donors to make an appointment in order to lessen the number of people waiting at the center. To schedule an appointment, visit the Midland Center for the Arts website:
