Red Cross Blood Drive
American Red Cross will sponsor a blood drive, 1-6 p.m. Feb. 9, at Brand New Church, 271 W. Main St., in Farmington. As a thank-you for helping ensure a stable blood supply, those who come to give blood in February will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Amazon. (Restrictions apply. Additional information and details are available at RedCrossBlood.org/Together.)

The Red Cross is testing blood, platelet and plasma donations for covid-19 antibodies. The test may indicate if the donor's immune system has produced antibodies to this coronavirus, regardless of whether an individual developed covid-19 symptoms.
