DHS Tigers football, Red Cross hosting blood drive Friday, July 15

The Demopolis High School football team and the American Red Cross are hosting a blood drive inside the DHS gymnasium on Friday, July 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Visit redcrossblood.org to set up an appointment.

The Tigers have a goal of 50 pints that will help to earn $500 for equipment. “We need the community’s help to reach our goal,” DHS Head Coach Bryan Seymore said. “Please make an appointment today and share this information with your family, friends and co-workers.”

The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in the community.
