With summer blood supplies at critically low levels, now it’s even more important for you to consider donating blood if you can.

The city of Marysville is teaming up with American Red Cross Northwest Region and the Marysville Public Library to offer a Marysville blood drive on Wednesday, Aug. 21, between 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the library, 6120 Grove St.

 To schedule an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter Marysville under “Find a drive” or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

 With one blood donation, you can help up to three people and it takes only about an hour of your time. If you aren’t able to donate this time, another Marysville blood drive is scheduled on Nov. 20.
