October is National Liver Awareness Month and the American Red Cross reminds eligible blood donors that organ transplant patients often rely on donated blood. Liver transplant patients may need 30 or more different blood products during surgery. All types of blood are needed.

There will be a Blood Drive Wednesday, October 31 at Altamont High School from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The drive is sponsored by the National Honor Society. All presenting blood donors will receive a scratch code-card with a unique pin number to redeem online at redcrossblood.org/empower for a prize (while supplies last). Rules and regulations apply. Refreshments will be available for all donors. Photo ID required.
