A recent problem with broken pipes at the American Red Cross building wont derail plans for a blood drive scheduled Monday. It simply will be conducted at an alternate location.
The drive had been set for 1:30 to 6 p.m. at the Westlake Drive facility, where pipes froze and burst on Jan. 17 when single-digit temperatures occurred. The entire building was flooded as a result, with ceiling tiles crumbling and other damage reported.
Due to continuing efforts to get the Red Cross offices back in order, Mondays blood drive will instead be held just down the road at the Mount Airy Elks Lodge. The same hours will apply.
More information is available from the local Red Cross chapter at 786-4183.
