Rim Country Blood Drives Scheduled For May


United Blood Services will be conducting drives in the Rim Country in May.

The service said saving lives just got faster. United Blood Services has a new, simplified donor interview which has been slimmed down by almost 30 percent.

"It's even shorter for donors who give at least every six months. What's more, use your heroic powers to give blood in May and receive an exclusive thermal travel mug as a thank you," the organization's press release said.

To make an appointment to donate blood, call 1-877-448-GIVE (4483) or visit www.UnitedBloodServicesAZ.org.

Blood drives in the Rim Country are:

Christopher-Kohl's Fire Department, Saturday, May 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Christopher Creek Loop Conference Center;

Forest Lakes Fire Department and homeowners association, May 21, from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m, bus in the parking lot at milepost 288, Highway 260;

Pine Strawberry, Tuesday, May 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the First Baptist Church gym.
