The American Red Cross will visit the Damariscotta office of The First, N.A. for a blood drive. The drive, sponsored by The First, is Tuesday, July 30, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Red Cross will be sending their donor coach, which is a converted recreational vehicle specifically designed for their blood collection. The coach will be parked on Water Street adjacent to The First's public entrance. The registration table will be located in the front lobby of The First.
"Having a safe and ample blood supply available is a community-wide responsibility," explained The First's Human Resource Officer Denise Griffin. "Blood must be available whenever and wherever it is needed for patients. You literally have it in you to help save a life."
