The 7th annual “Community that Cares” blood drive will be held at the YMCA in Rome, at 301 West Bloomfield Street. During the summer months, blood and platelet donations often do not keep pace with hospital demand. You’ll get a free sandwich from Subway in Rome, a free pint of Stewart’s ice cream, and a $10 VISA gift card! Walk-ins welcome, but appointments encouraged. To schedule an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org, call 1-800-REDCROSS or use the Blood Donor App. Use sponsor code ROMECTC.
