Our next EUMC blood drive is November 15 at 12 noon. Be advised that the Red Cross is requiring all people in the Blood Drives to wear masks again due to the increasing number of covid cases and low vaccination rates. This is nationwide.

Red Cross has scheduled 75 donor appointments due to the increasing needs. To schedule, either download the Red Cross Donor app on your phone or go to RedCrossDonor.org or send an email with several preferred times to Ron.E.Mayhew@gmail.com (or call Ron and leave message at 208-939-8551).
