Bloodmobile answers

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be at the 4-H Building in Perham from 1 to 7 p.m. on Monday, March 2, according to an announcement made this week by Mrs. Mary Hemmelgarn, local Red Cross chairman. Some changes to the age limit have been made. Persons over the age of 65 must seek their doctor’s permission before giving. Eighteen-year-olds no longer need parents’ consent to donate. To clear up appeared misunderstandings patients are not charged for the blood they use, according to Mrs. Hemmelgarn. They are however charged for the processing and administration cost. Those wishing to donate who do not have an appointment to do so may walk in to donate at any time.
