Blood drive to be held at Tanger Outlet

The American Red Cross will be at Kimball Junction to collect blood on Friday, June 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The blood drive will be held at the Tanger Outlets on 6699 North Landmark Drive.

According to Joe Black, donor recruitment representative for Central Utah, "In Utah, someone needs blood every eight minutes. In Utah, the Red Cross serves 31 hospitals, including the Park City Medical Center and must collect about 440 units of blood every day to meet the demand."

Individuals unable to donate blood can still make contributions by organizing a Red Cross blood drive or volunteering. To find the nearest blood drive to you at other times call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.
