The Franciscan Sisters are opening their doors in January to receive blood donors who want to go the extra mile to help save lives by donating blood. New donors are always welcome, so bring a friend and help with this great need, especially during the winter months when the demand increases because of accidents, surgeries and chronic illnesses. The American Red Cross has scheduled a Bloodmobile at St. Francis Convent (St. Francis Hall), Little Falls on Tuesday, January 22, 1-7 p.m., Wednesday January 23, 12 noon – 6 p.m., and Thursday, January 24, 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Anyone who is at least 16 years of age (please bring a parental consent), weighs at least 110 pounds and is considered to be in good health may be eligible to donate blood. There is no upper age limit and the time commitment is minimal. Please bring your photo identification. For more information or to make an appointment to donate blood, contact Sister Julien Dirkes at (320)632-0663.
