Innes Memorial Blood Drive is coming up at Bristol United Methodist Church

Posted on April 30, 2014 at 9:24 a.m.

BRISTOL — The Innes Memorial Blood Drive is set for 3 to 7 p.m. May 13 in the Family Life Center at Bristol United Methodist Church, 201 S. Division St.

The blood drive goal is 72 pints in memory of John and Faye Innes’ efforts to reach that goal while they hosted the drive. Since the Innes' deaths in December 2008, members of Bristol United Methodist Church have continued the drive in their memory and South Bend Medical Foundation renamed it The Innes Memorial Blood Drive.

Medications will be checked in the Medical Criteria Manual to ensure the safety of the donor and recipient’s health. Most people taking medications, including prescription medications, will be accepted as blood donors.

Registration is available online (sponsor code: BristolUMC), or call Melodie Halvorsen at 848-5237 to schedule a donation time. Walk-ins are welcome.
