Held in conjunction with Operation North Pole and Lifesource Blood Services, the fire department blood drive is being held to help alleviate shortages after this winter, said Fire Chief Alan Wax.

The drive will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Fire Station #3, 130 E. Thacker St. To schedule a donation, contact Lifesource at (877) 543-3768. Walk-ins are also welcome.
