Jamestown BPU Plans Blood Drive

The public is invited to donate blood at the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities Red Cross blood drive from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the BPU Education Room, 92 Steele St., Jamestown.

Lunch will be offered to blood donors. Donors may access the BPU blood drive by entering the “D” driveway at 92 Steele Street to reach the BPU parking lot. Facing the building from the parking lot, enter the Visitor Entrance, the right door under the green awning beside the BPU Customer Service Department, sign in at the window and take the elevator to the first floor.

Donors will need a picture ID such as a blood donor card or driver’s license. Donors must be at least 17 years of age and in good health. Walk-ins are welcome.

To arrange an advance appointment, call Becky Robbins, BPU communications coordinator, at 661-1680. Those who reach a recording should leave their name, telephone number and the time they plan to give blood. Those donors will receive confirmation closer to the date of the blood drive.
