Baptists to aid Red Cross in St. Louis blood drive

ST. LOUIS (BP)--Messengers and guests attending the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention are being encouraged to participate in an emergency blood drive sponsored by the St. Louis chapter of the American Red Cross.

Blood supplies in St. Louis are critically low and in some case less than a one-day supply exists, according to the Red Cross.

In response, the St. Louis Metro Baptist Association will host a blood drive June 10-12 at the America's Center. On June 10, blood drive hours will be from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on the second floor plaza of the America's Center. Times have not yet been set for June 11-12.

Messengers and guests are asked to sign up for an appointment on June 10 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Donors must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds.
