There will be a Red Cross Blood Drive next Wednesday, December 12th, from 12 noon to 5:30 pm, at the United Methodist Church in Fowler, IN.  The American Red Cross has a current motto, "This holiday season give something that means something -- give blood and help save lives."  Because the holiday season brings added need for blood, the Fowler State Bank has donated $100 in Fowler Chamber of Commerce Bucks as an incentive to donate.

Each presenting donor will receive a number. the winning number will be drawn at 5:30 pm when the blood drive closes, and the winner will be immediately contacted.  In addition, the Indiana-Ohio Red Cross region is conducting a region-wide weekly drawing for a $250 gas gift card.  Your registration for that drawing will be automatic as you sign in as a donor.

The local donors seldom make appointments but simply drop-in at their convenience.  Because it is anticipated a larger than average number of donors will be present, please call 1 (800) 733-2767 or go to"fowlerumc" to schedule a time.  This will help insure there are sufficient staff sent to Fowler and may shorten your wait.

Fowler Rotarians will be registering individuals at the door for the $100 drawing between 3 pm to 5:30 pm.
