Blood drive changes locations

October 20, 2010 —

The Red Cross will again be holding a blood drive in Hudson on Thursday, October 28 — but it will be in a new location.

The blood drives have mostly been held at the Hudson Community Center for the last several years, but with the moving of the Senior Citizen Center Kitchen from Addison to Hudson last month, it was decided that closing the kitchen for a day to host the blood drive would impact more people than necessary. Therefore, the blood drives will be moved to the Hudson American Legion Hannon-Colvin Post 180 on Cadmus Road.

“The American Legion has been very helpful about this,” says Red Cross Blood Services director Karen Daugherty. “The Legion will make a great location. It has plenty of room, a big kitchen, plenty of good parking and several other good points. Mike Shorthouse and other Legion members have been very helpful with this.”

The blood drive will be next Thursday, October 28, from noon to 5:45 PM.
